Yes, that's correct @anocn4 .... both in the same concession.


its the biggest concession in all of Botswana so I usually split between the two.  In the past, I used to prefer Lebala because the viewing was significantly better (Long time ago) ... now I prefer lagoon. Viewing has been MUCH better of late for cheetah in particular.

Most surprising to me were the #s of carmine bee eaters.  Then more surprising were lions with the bee eaters.  The 6th cheetah coalition!  You are becoming a Kwando historian.  Eles in the rain are fabulous.  You probably enjoyed the rain too, as a respite from the October heat.  Loads of great stuff here, once again!
