James' article on the water in the Savute channel in Africa Geographic magazine

 

 

The Other Side of Savute
James' article in the April 2010 issue of Africa Geographic magazine
The arrival of water in Botswana’s Savute Channel after 27 dry years is presenting all wildlife species in the region with unexpected challenges. For one pride of lions in particular, the simple act of crossing their territory – once open grassland, now bisected by a flowing river – poses new and potentially life-altering dangers. Photographer and guide James Weis was on hand to record this poignant scene.

BOOK PUBLICATIONS
James Weis' images featured in new the book on Mombo Camo in Botswana's Okavango Delta

 

A Beautiful New Book
Mombo - Okavango's Place of Plenty
James' images featured prominently in the new book on Mombo Camp

(WE HAVE THIS BOOK FOR SALE - CONTACT US IF YOU WANT A COPY)

James' photography is also prominently featured in the brand new coffee-table book on Mombo Camp, now in publication as of August 2004.  We have copies of the book for anyone interested.  For anyone who has stayed at Mombo or is planning a visit to Mombo, this book is really a must-have.   Contact us for further details.

What is it about Mombo in the rich heart of Botswana’s Okavango Delta that arouses such a passionate response?

Why does Mombo deserve to have an entire book devoted to it?

Mombo lies in the richest area of Botswana’s Okavango Delta. A combination of water and diverse habitat supports a high density and diversity of the wildlife and predators, and is the reason why Mombo is the prime wildlife destination in southern Africa and why the Yei and Xaniqwe people, who once lived in this area, called Mombo ‘the Place of Plenty’.

MOMBO – Okavango’s Place of Plenty contains 336 pages of extraordinary photographs intended to convey something of the Mombo experience. The book is unique in that we were able to select the final photographs from literally thousands of images that were loaned to us by over thirty different photographers who have been involved with Mombo since the early 1990s.

Mombo Camp, one of Africa’s truly extraordinary safari camps, takes a maximum of 24 guests a night. To quote from Lieutenant-General Ian Khama, Vice-President, Botswana who wrote the Foreword:
"Mombo is an area which few people will be fortunate enough to visit other than through the pages of this book."

Mombo - Okavango’s Place of Plenty relates the story of Mombo within the context of Botswana and the Okavango Delta.

• We relate the history of the Mombo Concession and Wilderness Safaris’ involvement in Mombo from the early 1990s;

• We explore the dynamics of the Okavango Delta and the unique natural systems that sustain it;

• We take readers on a journey through the Mombo seasons and live the Mombo experience through the stories of some of the people whose passion for Mombo emerges in their tales – these range from guides, managers, guests, photographers, documentary makers and artists;

• We focus on the predators who thrive on the game attracted by Mombo’s diverse habitats and relate the stories of some of Mombo’s characters like Martina the maned lioness, the Mombo Boys a coalition of male lions who were dominant until the mid-Nineties, the famous cheetah known as the ‘Mother of Five’ and leopards like Limpy and Nicky;

• We describe the challenges, excitement and satisfaction of the reintroduction of rhinos to the Delta;

• We visit Mombo camp and sense the tranquillity that is engendered by the harmony between the architecture, the décor and the surrounding wilderness.
