While We Were Sleeping
Our guests and guides get to spend a minimum of 8 hours a day out in the Zambian bush looking for animals going about their normal day to day activities. However we all have the luxury of returning to the safety of our rooms after dinner later that evening and climbing into a warm comfy bed. The animals on the other hand, well this becomes the most dangerous part of their day. For the herbivores this is point when most predators start hunting and for the predators prowling at night time gives them a real advantage to catch some unsuspecting prey. there are also other nocturnal mammals who are just better suited to carry on with the cover of darkness.
Over the last week we have been placing a night time camera trap in strategic places around Mwamba Bushcamp to see what night time visitors are moving around through the camp. The photos below show just a glimpse of what goes on while we are sleeping.
