Wild Diaries - June Updates from Around the World - Part 2

Today we catch up with Fredrik from Aurora Safari Camp in Swedish Lapland where the seasons are changing rapidly from winter 2 weeks ago to summer now, almost by-passing spring. Nature is thriving there at the moment.

Also we introduce Kate from Kwando Safaris who talks about sightings in and around the Okavango Delta and Nxai Pan in Botswana. The water levels in the Okavango are at record levels and interesting wildlife sightings have been reported including denning wild dogs, a large coalition of lions and a tree-climbing cheetah.

Welcome to the Wildlife & Wilderness Travel & Safaris show, the world’s first and only podcast on wildlife safaris worldwide and sustainable tourism. This show’s for everyone interested in eco-tourism, travel in the natural world and adventures to our planet’s wild places.

I’m your host, Dr. Steve Banner, biologist and Director of the travel company, Wildlife & Wilderness, providing high quality holiday experiences to thousands of clients for almost 25 years.

For this month we have split the roundup into two parts, this being the second, for reasons explained in the first park. When we started thinking about podcasting for Wildlife & Wilderness we never ever thought that we would not be travelling. These are unusual times and we have taken the decision to reduce the frequency to twice monthly for the future. Of course when we do travel on research trips for wildlife holidays this will add a whole new aspect to the podcast show.
