Some of the nicest or cutest ways to encounter wildlife is not always when you drive out in the Reserve, as you can read in Guido’s story: “For years we have been familiar with all kinds of ‘house pets’ at the different lodges in Limpopo-Lipadi. We have become quite used to having our resident bushbuck around at lodge 4, as well as the daily visits of the playful (and sometimes very cheeky) vervet monkeys. Lodge 5 reported a nest of African Hoopoe’s. And we were very happy to discover a new guest around our lodge recently, a bushbaby. Almost every evening we saw it jumping from tree to tree and disappearing high up in the trees before we could take a picture of this lovely, tiny primate. Fortunately, we had a great opportunity to take pictures of a different bushbaby near Tholo dam, so the pictures you see are not taken from the lodge (but cute enough as it is).
