  • Buffalo Bash at Ximuwu Dam!

Well,we thought we had at least two more weeks of water left in our Ximuwu dam. But surprise, surprise! This morning, a thirsty herd of about 200 buffaloes decided to throw a party at the dam 💦Now, we’re left with just a puddle and some muddy buffalo footprints 😅
  • This week, we were treated to a truly special sighting—a young hippo! Seeing a hippo out of the water during the day is a magical experience, but catching a glimpse of this adorable little one made it even more extraordinary.
