Last Day at Chiefs Camp then on to Singita

by on Jul.31, 2019, under Family

Joyce and I decide to have a leisurely morning as everyone else decides to take one last game drive on the way to the airstrip for our flight in the same King Air that brought us. It’s cool and we have breakfast with our family then see them off. We say our goodbyes to the wonderful Chiefs Camp staff, then are driven to the airstrip for our flight. It’s a short flight to Maun to clear customs out of Botswana, but this time they decide to do it the hard way and it takes us an hour and a half because they inspect every bag. We continue the hour and forty-five-minute flight landing at Sangita lodge where we are met by our guides and trackers. Our Hostess welcomes us to our compound, our chef has prepared lunch and we still leave for the afternoon game drive at three-thirty. We come upon a small heard of Rhinos wallowing in a water hole with both Black and White species, which is an impressive start. We then view some elephants and start to get the lay of the Singita land.

The first evening we join the other lodge guests at the main lodge for a barbeque. We are introduced to the excellent Singita wine collection, and a wonderful meal cooked over the fire. We are then entertained by the local tribe who perform a traditional dance, that includes participation by some of our family. It was a very auspicious start to our stay at Singita.
