Ticks and Trails

It is good to be back at ANT Nkombe camp at Sabi Sans Game Reserve. I am a bit tired after my first three walks, but we had already three dangerous game encounters (2xRhino, 1xElephant). This morning I was walking as backup guide. Ross (the lead guide) and me – under Andre’s guidance – brought everyone home safely :-).

On the way we encountered a very dangerous species. A Bont Tick! I had tick bite fever already a few times before and I hope not to get it again (it is no fun :-)). But I admit that – looking at the macro picture – it is an interesting little creature.

The picture below shows Andre and Graham during one of our Rhino approaches.

PS: If you like to know more about the Trails Guiding Course go to http://www.africanaturetraining.co.za. A great experience, even if you do it for fun and not for professional reasons.
