The duba files

Yes, it is the jump in luxury and price that concerns me. I quite liked the comfort level when I was there in March 2010. A little worn, but still quite nice, and perfectly comfortable.

 

"The" market being able to bear it is one thing. My personal market bearing it is another. I have no problem with a few overly opulent, over-priced camps strewn about here and there, but I don't think the delta needs any more.

Shall we try and keep this on topic, ie photographic, as started by Johan, and keep pricing etc to another thread? Am enjoying very much everyone's images, and I don't want to see it deteriorate. Thanks, Matt.

The lighter side of a kill at Duba (not so light if you are the buffalo, I suppose)-

Zaminoz,

 

It's not like you are on a commercial photo shoot.

 

Pangolin,

 

Do you have some close ups of the young lion's face?

My name is "big ears" and I wonder why.

They didn't caught this one but half an hour later, the females grabbed a young one. Unfortunately for them, the Skimmer male stole their prey.

 

I have seen some intense battles and several times, the buffalo made it even if the odds were against them.

A young female who despite the odds became a subadult. Have seen a couple of attempts by the Skimmer male, when he took over the pride, to kill her. She also escaped being killed as a cub by the females of the Tsaro pride.

Just a spur-winged goose - photographing birds was a thing I thoroughly enjoyed

When I look back at pics from Duba, seems like every other one has a spur- winged goose somewhere.
