The flight was completely uneventful and the view was wonderful. The camp, located on Chief's Island in the Mombo Concession of the Moremi Game Reserve, was warm and welcoming. After a fifteen minute drive from the airstrip, we were greeted by a welcoming committee at the main lodge.
The entire staff turned out to sing us a welcome song.
Pausing only to drop our bags and have yet another delicious afternoon tea, we were out in the Land Rovers for our first game drive. Our driver Kata was also a skilled naturalist and guide. Bouncing across the grassland, we came upon a cackle of spotted hyena (yes, that is the correct term for a group of hyenas!).
