When you visit rocky areas you are likely to bump into a big, wooly guinea pig-like mammal called ‘dassie’ or ‘rock hyrax’. They usually live in large herds that can consist of dozens of animals. Dassies leave a tar-like mass of urine and dung that is traditionally used as an anti-inflammatory much like cortisone. Dassies have tusk-like incisors and are closely related to elephants.

Many thanks, trip was great! Saw the big five in the Kruger and swam with whale-sharks. Lots of long days driving but that's the nature of these trips if you want to see loads.
