Camp secret nightlife

04. November 2016

It is well known that when the cat's away, the mice will play and it is no exception at the camp as when everyone is asleep, we are often granted a visit of unexpected guests.

When everything is quiet and dark, and our human guests got back to their tent for a comfortable night, nature takes back her rights and we welcome guests of another kind. Intrigued by what happens on the camp when we draw the curtain on the day, we installed trap cameras that we affectionately call the « sneaky cams ». We are then able to keep an eye on the curious and daring animals that venture on the camp. 

Most of the time, we receive visits of small animals exploring and playing, like ringtail civet cats or palm civets. But sometimes, when viewing the video in the morning, we are thrilled to find out that some more impressive mammal had been wandering on the camp, most of the time looking for some water. See for yourself this leopard quenching his thirst from our pond.

We are still trying to get a good picture of an elephant, that has been strolling near the camp. Probably too shy, he won't let us take a nice picture of him, but we will keep you updated as soon as we succeed!
