I love this Pete. It is not all about the predators ot the “Big 5”. It is about the little pleasures out in the bush. I take pictures of everything I see and those are sometimes the most rewarding.

Oh, I love that Chameleon………………… isn’t it true that they go sort of grey/whitish at night? I seem to remember this………

My initial visit with my son to Londolozi was during the first rains. Such a wonderful experience. Wish we could have stayed for a month. Just loving tis time of year when the green takes over and the rivers are flowing

Terrific information Pete. I love the idea of getting out of the rover to capture a ground view of the dung beetle- next trip! The big five are spectacular but it’s the unexpected smaller creatures that can make a drive even more memorable!!

How marvelous that the rains have begun. I loved the different species you showed us. We always love to watch the dung beetle rolling his enormous for him ball of dung. Thank you Victoria

A really nice Blog Pete and thanks for pointing out the “little” things to appreciate in the bush. We all want to see the big things, but sometimes the little things are amazing also. I did not realize the strength of the dung beetle. I know that ants can carry heavy weights, but this is amazing. Nice pics and good pointers also. Thanks for sharing, I enjoyed reading it.
