Bat Hawk Feeding at Sedia Hotel Campsite

Twilight last week and a Bat Hawk chased a small sparrow like bird into a car door. While it was stunned and on the ground, it came back to collect it's supper. Then it was off to a tree to dine. It must have been rather young - it seemed to have more brown than most description.

This all happened while I was waiting for the coals to cook supper.

Sedia Hotel Flood Research


Camp in the best of comfort, close to what may well be the greatest flood of your lifetime. Book an accommodated tent and do your own research on what could be the 'mother of all floods.'

Sedia Riverside Hotel is also an internet hotspot - bring your laptop and keep up to date with the latest research information. Walk the banks of the mighty Thamalakane River while you still can - marvel at the majesty of a vibrant river in full flow. Get close to the action - these are the good old days!

Sedia Riverside Hotel Inquires:

African Jacana - Mating at Sedia

(Photo: Dr. Ernst Reitan)

Timing is everything - a time to mate and a time to be born and timing a great photo. Here we have 2 African Jacana mating just upstream from Sedia Riverside Hotel. Notice the 2 eggs resting on their floating nest. They lay up to 4 during the mating season - "They construct relatively flimsy nests on floating vegetation, and lay eggs with dark irregular lines on their shells, providing camouflage amongst water weeds[1]."

Sedia now has a 9 metre boat for sundown cruises - a chance for you to see the bird life along the shores of the mighty Thamalakane River and look for animals by the Maun Game Reserve. What a wonderful way to end the day.

Global Travellers - Sedia Riverside Hotel

Sedia Riverside Hotel attracts guests from all over the world. Here we have Jean- Christophe Devillers and Allan Bimson having a look at a classic Citroen. The map they are looking at shows a trip from Paris to Peking and returning via Moscow. Hopefully the driver will include his Botswana trip on the map after he returns home.

No Guts - No Glory

Sitting at the Terrace of Sedia Riverside Hotel provides the opportunity to meet some very interesting travelers. Last week I met Gerard Swanepoel aka GUTS. The man has lead groups from Cape to Cairo twice and safaris all over southern Africa. The evening we met he had just returned from an AfroTrek Safari into Moremi Game Reserve. Photography is one of his passions and the above photo is from his collection.

Click on his name above
and you will visit his Extreme Adventure Africa Safaris site. The following is a quote from the Discovery Adventure website:
"Guts is the perfect nick-name for this hardcore lover of life. A true explorer and extreme adventurer, Guts’ passion for photography has taken him to some of the most remote, yet extraordinary places just to get that perfect shot. Trained in adventure tourism, he is very well equipped to take you out into the wilds of Africa to experience a trip of a lifetime…just don’t forget your camera!"
