At the bird bath…Mosetlha Bush Camp. Madikwe


This is how I secured the door of my cabin.
If only we could do this back in the “real” world…

Right outside my cabin (Gemsbok) is this bird-bath.
I spent my first afternoon,pre-game drive,
sitting and watching the local birdlife.

There were many of these Blue Waxbills
