Of course we wanted to see African animals and not only those we could see from our chalets. We saw big and small animals, but I think the smallest we saw was the male spider. This is a spider web out in the bush. The big spider is the female and the three small creatures down to the left are three males courting her. They of course don’t know that the one the female chooses will be eaten after mating.
On our walks in the bush we saw some boulders that seem to be lifted so we asked. The guide told us that it was a species of ants that lived under these stones and over the years they lifted the rocks. Nobody knows how!
We did not see many birds, at least I don’t remember any. But I was facinated by the bird’s nests that looked like balls hanging from the thinnest tree branches. One tree in particular was impressiv, we called it an appartment tree. You have to look closely on the second picture to see the nests, even better click on the picture to enlarge.
And of course termite hills,
