Mfuwe Lodge - Elephants in camp in June?

Hi - We are planning our 2nd trip to Africa. The highlight of our first 45 day trip was Little Governor's Camp due to the fact that there were elephants in camp every day and hippos serenading us every night. I have seen pictures of the elephants coming into Mfuwe but is this seasonal? We will be there in June. Does anyone know what we can expect? Any recommendations of camps where the animals are up close and personal?

The small herd of elephants that you refer to at Mfuwe lodge reception in November/December is the same herd that is often seen the rest of the year at Flatdogs and Croc Valley Camp.

I can tell you there were Ellies and hippos in camp ( I mean at the swimming pool and on the footpaths) at Flatdogs, right on the river near the Mfuwe gate every single day and night last July. This is not seasonal. Lions slept against our chalet. Troops of baboons and monkeys daily in camp and monkeys at the restaurant. You may be thinking of the ellies that come into the lodge in the later months for fruit trees.

Can't tell you about Mfuwe Lodge as I cannot afford it.
