Beho Beho Bushblog – Salum – 13th December

Salum Mpapa

It was such a hot night and it wasn’t pleasant to sleep. I kept waking up as I could hear Lions, Hyena and Hippo. Later on it rained a bit. In the morning when I went to the lounge the first thing I did was to look on the plains as usual to see what was happening.  I saw one Male Lion near the big Baobab (Christopher’s tree) lying on the plain. Later on he woke up and moved to the shade of a palm bush. Also there was a big herd of Zebra and Wildebeest walking in a single file across the plains of the Tamarind tree, as well as Elephants, Hippo, Waterbuck, Giraffe, Impala and Baboon. In the afternoon it was hot again, when we were having a siesta, clouds built up from Hatambura hill and all of a sudden it started to rain. It was such nice rain and the temperature dropped. After the rain I could hear water flowing at the Msine River. I was on the way to the look out Banda to see if I could see water in the river where I saw Onno and he told me that he was there just now and there was no water. I decided to go there just to enjoy the view and watch birds because of an eruption of Termites. When I was at the look out Banda I saw water coming. I was so exited because it was the first water of the season and I started to shout Onno, Onno! Water, water! He came running to see it. It was nice to watch it coming and it didn’t come fast because it was filling the holes first but tree branches and animals droppings were getting washed down.
