Face resembles a weavers but it skulks and the rest of the body is more of greenbul nature (sorry non-birders). Very shy and solitary.

Meanwhile at sunrise..

Died, went to Heaven & Returned!!

Just had an encounter with this “buddy” on his back. please don’t laugh coz this is serious stuff!!

Just checked in the loos (external toilets) to loose some weight for the evening! well someone else thought otherwise – as i began loosing weight this giant moth checks in to keep me company and decides to play summers within the 6 walls of the room. Just then messages start checkin in on my phone and i forget the moth.

Suddenly – doof!! then somthing soft pointed hits my lower leg – again and again at different angles. Now thats not a moth!. Look down with the low light of phones screen and this mAaSive Foot long (body) rat is in the small room with me. Now starts the drama….

Drafts masters in kilome

Looks can be decieving!

I’ve watched several young turks judge some of these players by their looks, but these are some of the most entertaining and smartest drafts players i’ve ever come accross in my life with most of their games ending in under a minute.

It would be interesting to see how modern living guests would ‘match-up’ against these residents

A day in Kilome’s Galagos Sanctuary

Galago world in Africa

After months of pursuation I was finally invited into Kilome’s private galagos sanctuary. A unique habitat that allows you to see this secretive  norctanal African primate up close during the day.

3hrs of guiding later i still didn’t have an image – not because we hadn’t seen a number of them but the sheer drama and excitement of the moment made me forget to press the “record’ button.

Running out of time the resident guide asked me to be a little patient as he sought a spot for me to capture ‘One’ shot of this female carrying a baby (1st image). An expert at their behavioural traits, he’s fast to locate them.

Entry is pre-booked and limited to not more than 4individuals at a go to minimize disturbance. Be ready to crawl or kneel to see them and access their lifestyle.
