Wildlife is never measured analytically, it is only rarely about accumulation and should never be about boorish point scoring. For a moment though pity Nelson Kasoe, a Bush Camp guide not without a good sprinkling of Kicheche stardust.
In a few days canvas will be zipped tight, ignitions shut down and camp fires doused. Guides, staff and pretty much the whole Kicheche family will take several weeks off. Many will be exhausted from a long season.
Sometimes you can only tell people so many times ...Jenny Varley has frankly spent far too long in a holding pattern before finally getting to Kicheche. She had the grace and class to tell me: 'Graham has taken more footage in the last four days than anywhere else'
Spotters, meet Murray, no stranger to this mercurial mail-out and indeed one of Bush Camp’s favourite sons. Murray has been a regular for many years but this January has outdone himself, with a whole pick and mix of cats with their candy-faced cubs.
