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.

We really enjoyed the trip. The lodge was very pleasant and the children loved the animals right in front of our chalet! Thank you for organising it for us, we will definitely pay another to the lodge.
