“The Mopani trees have budded and every day one can watch the russet leaves grow and pale into a beautiful green shiny leaves.   The cicadas are coming out and are singing away now — a lovely time of year.  The pathways are full of red Xmas spiders, as we used to call them when we were young. The  wee wee goggas are everywhere – ferocious hunters of all that crawl into their path.   I tippy toe through the army of Matabele ants that are around each pathway lamp, catching anything that lands in their way.   Never knew that Matabele ants were so active at night.  The bush is so alive at the moment with bird song, bugs, butterflies and beetles.  All the migrant cuckoos are also calling and if one knows one’s birds, you can stand and listen to about eight or nine different birds (or more) all calling at the same time.   How lucky I am!”


Thank you Daphne Wilmot from Wilmot Safaris in Botswana for sending me your beautiful photographs.

I hope to visit you someday soon with Lulu!


HAPPY weekend everybody and keep warm ♫♬♪

  1. Hi Di,
    I am so happy you put some of Daphne’s photo’s in your blog. Makes me quite homesick to read about all the goggas. Won’t it be wonderful to go on Safari together.
    Love you madly my friend

  2. Hi Di, long time no chat!
    My husband and I honeymooned in Botswana, with friends (sounds weird, I know!!) who worked at Lloyd’s camp in Savuti. These friends were actually married in the bush, it is a spectacular place! We would so love to get back there with our kids, but I don’t think Lloyd’s camp still exists. Hope you manage to get there soon.
