Unique Wildlife

aardavak

In Afrikaans language the name means ‘earth pig’. Aardvarks look a bit like pigs, with rabbit-like ears and a kangaroo’s tail—yet they are related to none of these animals. In fact, one of their closest living relatives are elephants. They are widely distributed throughout Southern Africa and prefer grasslands and open woodlands.

Interesting facts about the Aardavak…

  • They are nocturnal
  • Favourite food-ants & termites
  • Their wormlike tongue can be up to 30.5 cm long and is sticky to trap up to 50,000 termites and ants in one night!
  • It has the ability to seal its nostrils to keep dust and insects from invading its snout.

Our travel diaries:

Travel is one of the greatest of Life’s Joys.

A memorable family trip involves more than sand castles and amusement parks, though those are certainly kids’ favorites. It’s the experience that matters. Showing your children that a world exists beyond their back door, with beautiful colors, eccentric cuisine, a rich history and the great wilderness that is Kenya.

One of the most amazing destinations of the Savannah is KIBOKO CAMP. Set on the Bank of River GALANA in Tsavo is the most breathtaking Tented Camp of the Tsavo East. Sometime back my wife Ciru & I decided to be adventurous and pick a destination on the map in our living room with our eyes closed and as much as I secretly hoped for Malindi our fingers fell on the Tsavo. She quickly got in touch with our favorite travel agent – Read More

Quote of the month:

Travel because it is worth it, Travel opens up minds to new insights, revelation, and points of view. It teaches us valuable lessons about ourselves and completely changes our life. It has dawned on me; I’ve never heard anyone regret the trip they took however I’ve heard many people regret not making that dream trip a reality….. Stephen Schreck.
