Trailcam – I found the owner of these tracks.

The first night I had the camera up on this spot, I found the mystery animals tracks the next morning, on the road just out view of the camera. Frustrating.

What is birding like in Mozambique?

The single biggest thing I have looked forward to when we decided we are moving here is the birding. I couldn’t wait to see what I would find here. It has definitely hasn’t disappointed.  It has been amazing so far. Obviously also since most of my birding was done in the Free State, South Africa,…

Another cool Trailcam Visitor

Just a few pics of my latest trail-cam visitor. I put my camera out quite far from our house but left it there for just one night. Besides nearly 500 pictures of the wind blowing through the grass, it did capture this Large Spotted Genet.  Sadly, he or she never showed its faced properly. Hopefully,…

What is shopping like in Inhassoro, Mozambique?

As mentioned before, Inhassoro is our closest town. It is a drive of roughly 1 hour and 30 minutes of which a large part is a dirt road, past farms and small villages.  We could get more variety in Vilanculos, but that would add an extra hour’s driving time.  Inhassoro has very limited shopping the…

Trailcam Fun – My first trail-cam post from Mozambique.

When we first arrived, my husband and I weren’t sure what animals to expect here. We thought there won’t be much due to poverty and poaching. However, even though there definitely could be much more, we already saw way more than what we expected. I couldn’t wait to get my trail-cam out to see what lurks…
