Shareholder Martina and her partner Jost spent about four weeks in the reserve. So many incredible adventures to tell. Here is the first one, about ‘traffic’ in Limpopo-Lipadi. Here we also have some traffic rules, which are not created by man, but by nature…
Full stop – there is no getting through here.
The rules for pedestrians also apply here: Look left and right before walking.
The Black Mamba crosses the road faster than a human. It can reach a speed of up to 20 km/h.
Along the roadside it has workers. These are dung beetles, who are also known as rollers, as they roll dung into round balls, which are used as a food source or breeding chambers.
This is where the technical knowledge is needed: a flat tire. In Switzerland (where Jost is from) you have to be able to change a wheel on the occasion of the driving test. Luckily we have Actor with us…
When the car is running again, one should not drive too fast. Everywhere are hidden controllers, which are probably equipped with radar devices.
