Before I left Dubai and set off for my great South African Adventure, my amazing group of friends there bought me a leaving present – possibly THE greatest leaving present of all time – a trail cam! Also known as a camera trap, it takes photos when triggered by motion, both day and night. So, you can leave it somewhere secret and come back in a few days to find out who has been paying you a visit!

Because of the constraints of the properties I’ve been on until now, my trail cam has only ever been allowed around camp (except for one sneaky occasion). But don’t think the presence of a camp is enough to keep the critters away! Below I’ve posted some of my favourite photos from my Ecotraining course. Stay tuned for another update in a few weeks!
