The rain has come!
After two years of drought the good rains have arrived.
After two years of drought where we have had less than half our annual average (550 mm) each year the rains have come. From early November 2016 things started to look promising with good solid rain. They have continued and we have been blessed with 608 mm.
The bush has transformed and once again looks tropical and lush! The animals are visiting us less and enjoying the abundance of natural grazing. They all look healthy and well fed! The hippos are once again calling in joy and peace and tranquility has returned to the bush.
