Mchenja was the last NCS camp that we stayed in, and what a camp. Everyone in camp were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Our 1st drive was with Charles he was so enthusiastic it made our drive with him really interesting. On our 2nd day our guide was Simon. What a day we had!!! In the morning we found the Wild dogs 18 of them. Then Lion's with a kill. to see these animals doing what is so natural to them only a few metres from us will live with us for ever. Our afternoon drive lead us to track a Leopard for 1 1/2 hours and what a outcome. This magnificence animal was the highlight of the trip. When we thought it couldn't get any better Simon found 2 Poripine. This is why we named the day Mammoth Monday. Mchenja saved the best till last. Simon is a fantastic guide one of the best!!!!! So knowledgeable and patient. Thank you Simon. Thanks to Ambe and her team. A great stay. Fabulous camp all round.
