Kathy, Vera and I finished our preparations for this year’s expedition and base camp has come alive with the arrival of Team 1, and now it feels like home. Yesterday was full of introductions and briefings on the farm, our work here, and an introduction to life in Namibia. Afterwards we watched the sunset from the lapa and practiced our species identification as various groups of animals came to the water hole at desk.
Vera clearly enjoyed introducing us to the telemetry antenna and Kathy branding up the brand new Landcruisers as they arrived with a day or so to spare 😉
Thanks to Martin and Jane, our new camera traps have also arrived and Vera will brief us on how to use them later today.
