Hidden Treasures of Lamai

Lamai the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
When Mum's away the cubs come out to play.

What mischief can I get up to today?

Showing off his climbing skills.
A few weeks after our Blog on Leopards Mating, the male has been seen proving that he is the true alpha male in the area, he was spotted with another female on the same Kopje hopefully ensuring that we see lot of these little fellas above.

These cubs have been a regular sighting much to the enjoyment and entertainment of our guests, seen most mornings and evenings, playing around the rocks and branches that provide them with much needed shelter and protection. They have been a highlight amongst the many amazing sightings we get on a daily basis.

Many thanks to Linda Porter for letting us use her wonderful image of the rainbow above the Lamai Kopje.

Lamai’s Little Ones

We have had an exciting week around Lamai Camp where we have met the latest newcomers to our resident Dwarf Mongoose and Rock Hyrax family.

Good Morning
Whilst this Dwarf Mongoose pack has around 15 individuals it is only the dominant male and female mongoose that breed, though the other pack members help feed and care for the offspring.

Four baby Rock Hyraxes were discovered right next to one of the rooms where they are frequently seen playing on a rock formation. The Hyraxes are very entertaining to watch and often give us great amusement with their generally lazy behavior, short bursts of activity and at times peculiar social interactions (as depicted in last weeks blog). Watching these adorable babies play has definitely been a highlight of this week.
