The last couple of weeks have been extremely good for game sightings and for the Migration throughout the short grass plains area. The regular scattered showers have kept the game in the area and encouraged the nutrient rich grass to grow up. The last few days have seen a general drying up but this is a standard, regular cycle throughout the green season. The weather forecast predicts some good showers in the early days of this coming week which should keep the main herds in the general area.
This has definitely not been a good green season so far, in terms of amount of rain needed and we are all concerned about the dry season, if the rains do not fulfil their promise by the time they peter out towards the end April/beginning of May.
