Botswana, September 2013 - Senyati Safari Camp

This is our favourite campsite in the Kasane area, we've stayed here many times and, as usual, were made welcome by the owner, Louw. He's created a waterhole with fresh water, pumped daily, which is loved by the many elephants that visit daily, and there's a great deck from which to view the waterhole. It's not unusual to see 100 elephants in a day!

Over the years the waterhole has increased in size as the elephants churn up the edges.

During this stay at Senyati we saw lots of other animals visiting the waterhole.

A new underground bunker has been built by a photographic safari group. It gave us the opportunity to view animals at the waterhole from a completely different angle.

Family groups are a common sight at the waterhole.
