Kwando concession, northern Botswana

Written by Neil Gray

3 January 2009 Just back from an amazing 5-night stay at the Lebala Camp in the Kwando concession of northern Botswana in the Linyanti marshes area next to the border with the Caprivi Strip of Namibia.

I added 7 lifers to my southern Africa list, Red-headed Quelea, Rufous-bellied Heron, Southern Brown-throated Weaver, Chirping Cisticola, Hartlaub's Babbler, African Crake and Dickinson's Kestrel, the first 5 without even leaving the camp! With a trip list of 168 and having been working in the DRC and Zambia for much of the year, and a holiday in the UK thrown in, I finished off 2008 with a species total of 550.

The regional specials seen during the trip, in addition to some of the lifers already mentioned, were:

Slaty Egret, Swamp Boubou, Senegal Coucal, Black Coucal, Red-billed Spurfowl, Burchell's Sandgrouse and Collared Pratincole.
