African Civet – or as close as I get to it…

03 March 2012

Nocturnal and elusive – for spotting the African civet you have to be pretty lucky. Fairly well represented around Lamai Serengeti, it is only in the evening when we have managed to spot it. Actually photographing the African civetin such conditions is taking it to another level!

So let us show what is easy to photograph, but equally interesting – footprints!

With the help of a beautiful summer thunderstorm yesterday evening, the pathways were in excellent condition to preserve tracks from anything that passes.

A morning walk around camp after rains is very enjoyable. Print sare easily identifiable and the smell of the African bush after rain is just out of this world!
