Great story. Are the Honey Badgers something readily seen on a typical game drive?

Hi David. Honey badgers are typically nocturnal and although there is a healthy population of them here, is not something we get to see very often. Due to the cooler weather of winter, however, various rangers have been lucky enough to have a few sightings on morning game drive.

Although I think the Honey Badger is a very mean and tuff animal, the Wolverine is by far the meanest animal for its size. Your thoughts?

I was also wondering about the wolverine. Maybe the badger’s northern cousin? Wolverines are serious badasses.

Fascinating! Mother Nature never ceases to amaze me. I guess the next time I am at Londolozi I am going to tell my ranger, which I hope is Amy again, that I want to see a Honey Badger!

Really interesting Amy and great pictures! They certainly are tough little creatures. It’s quite amazing that they wouldn’t back down from a pride of Lions!

I loved learning about the bees. Seriously, who would have the pluck to rub their butt on a bee hive! And the theory about why Honey Badgers withstand venom. Think I will go out and get stung by a bee….not! Wonderful blog entry, Amy. Thanks!
