Interesting sighting this month

Grumeti | December 2019

The golden winged bat is rather a lovely little thing, very common in the Sabora region, in fact. If you look carefully in the desert date trees, you may find them roosting during the day and if you get too close they take flight in a burst of golden yellow – very pretty indeed. These bats are well known for following mass insect eruptions.

The greater galago displaying melanism. This particular race we know as Otolemur argentatus.
These incredible looking galagos are quite common up on Sasakwa Hill and regularly appear as they mosey along the tops of the roof and building structures. It is incredibly dark in appearance and we have noticed that they are not as vocal as the usual greater galago (Otolemur crassicaudatus). They really are a lovely sighting so be sure to keep your eyes out for them whilst you visit us here at Sasakwa Lodge.
