It seems that these little primates are becoming big fans of the night vision camera! I was standing right in the window with a normal video camera for this one! They’re getting brave!

Whilst the bushbabies love to hang out in our sandforest here in Hluhluwe, they tend to run off at the sight of humans. But now winter is coming and they have suddenly got very confident… Be prepared for regular updates from these cheeky little monkeys!!
For those of you who haven’t found this post via the main website of our Hluhluwe accommodation, this is what you have to look forward to when you book at Umkhumbi Lodge. A walk along a winding path (lit by fairy nights at light) leads to your home from home. And don’t worry about […]

Well done Adrian! On todays game drive he spotted the first Lion, and before the game ranger! That never happens!! Be proud
