@@Bush dog, thank you, always enjoy a story about the animals and people along the way. Feeling a bit sorry for the last of the Dynamite boys. Won't get to all these Parks in my lifetime so fun to read of others journeys.

That was the end of the report .   I would like to thank all those who have shown interest for it and more particularly those who added one or more comments : @@Atravelynn, @@michael-ibk, @@madabou

A few hundreds meters after we left Xanda, we encountered another curious elephant.     Close to camp, we came across a very relaxed sable herd with young ones.     Our last sighting before

The first game drive led us to Ngamo Plains. Ngamo is a wide open space with few trees, no tall grass and partly flooded in rainy season. It attracts a lot of wildlife that feels safer than elsewher

You have a lot of depth here in these last segments, and the whole report. Even brilliant yellow butterflies and that adorable plover.

 

The unexpected walking safari had a happy ending.

Magnificent photography as always Mike! Beautiful colour and saturation, combined with great composition and stunning detail throughout.

 

I am not even going to try and single any out.

@Bush dog, amazing photos and excellent trip-report! 

I love also the pictures from 2000. They are somehow analog-nostalgic. The important point is not to come to Hwange in March... unless you love the special light and a green background.

By experience, I've learned that, unless you are a list ticker, all seasons, in that different, are gorgious.

And regarding argentic, I am preparing, little by little, a topic concerning the period from 1996 to 2006.

the same is for me actually... I start to love green season. The predators as well as some (or most?) herbivores are territorial and stay on their territory independently on the season. With a good guiding and some luck you can find animals in any season. And in green season - even more.  The backdrop is also better.

I just need to persuade my partner to travel in any season. I am still unsuccessful in that. :lol:

@Bush dogoh, it would be great!! I am fascinated by history of parks and old photos! I saw a few and on some of them I recognised the trees! The trees have a long life if not burnt.

Between 1996 and 2006 I even didn't think about Africa and you were already taking your gorgeous photos! I am really  looking forward to your new stories accompanied with pictures.

You may find a book by Keith Meadows called "Sometimes When it Rains" of interest.  A look back at some of the people that were integral in the development of wildlife tourism in Zimbabwe.

Ted Davison's own book "Wankie" is also a great read.
