On my 6th journey to Africa, I was fortunate enough to add two new species to my wildlife list; both on the same evening and both quick, blink and you’d miss them, type sightings. And both on the 1st game drive of the trip 🙂 The first were honey badgers, which I had desperately wanted to see (and if you missed the photos of those, you can find them here) and the second is the civet that is pictured below.
I don’t know much about civets, and as we had such a jam packed game drive, while sharing our vehicle with some wonderful safari newbies, our guide didn’t have a chance to provide too much of a chat about them. While I am sure any search engine could yield me more information on a civet than I ever could need to know, I might just leave this one and hope I see one again, and get a bit more information on it while out in the field. As if I needed another excuse to return to Africa!
Wishing everyone a wonderful week ahead.
