    Hi Natalie, I've just noticed you must have been putting on the explanation for the water when I put on my comment! Looking forward to the other camera being back in action.

    Hi Allan & Nigel, I had also wondered about the amount of water - this morning (16th June), there seems even more. The rest of the grass looks fairly dry. I wonder if Natalie or someone else from Royal Zambezi Lodge might let us know, if they get a moment.

    Hi Nigel, Allan and all the regular followers,
    I hope you are all well?
    Thank you for letting us know about the DSTV episode you watched on Royal Zambezi Lodge. They have a few with us, which make for good watching. Wild Fly actually did another clip for us that you can watch here: https://youtu.be/JPXfvUrmrXc
    We have lots of information on our website about fishing with us. We do practice catch and release here and have very ethical fishing standards. The section on our website you can look at is here: https://www.royalzambezilodge.com/angling/
    Regarding the water level -this is the highest it's been for years! Well done for noticing! It's actually because Lake Kariba are letting out more water to generate more electricity for Zambia and Zimbabwe. We hope it doesn't get too much higher or we won't be able to walk across the island to get to our boats !
    It’s getting quite chilly now as we enter our winter in the Lower Zambezi. The animals are lovely and active during the day, as they do not have to find shade to get away from the heat. This means the guests doing game drives and walking safaris are having a ball with the wildlife.
    We had a fabulous leopard sighting last night near camp and more and more elephants are starting to come to the edge of the water. You will notice this over the next few months on the cameras. The second camera, which I am sure you have noticed has been down for a while, is needing to be replaced, and the new one should arrive over the next month (if the Corona postal service allows!).
    Happy viewing!
    Take care,
    Natalie

    Nigel, you could be right as the areas of water look to be larger than they did one hour ago.

    Yes or the river may be changing course a bit and forming a new side channel. Interesting.

    Something was swimming low in the water. I don't know what it was but I took a photo about 14.55pm UK time.

    Hello to Management . Just to confirm to you that this afternoon I really enjoyed watching a fishing documentary here in South Africa on DSTV Supersport 10 channel filmed at Royal Zambezi Lodge on two occasions. In the rainy season and again on a trip after the rains. Featured Gareth George I think and your own Coxwain/ Fishing Guide Shadrack. Unusual to see a Nkupe caught on an artificial lure (and then released).

    12h58 CAT lovely to see the two elephants frolicking in the river and completely submerging themselves. What a trill for the guests arriving in the boat that had to pass close by the Ellies to get to the Jetty.
