UNIQUE LEMUR ENCOUNTERS IN MADAGASCAR

There are more than 100 species and sub-species of lemurs in Madagascar and UK travellers are keen to see them all. These charismatic primates - endemic to the island - display a wide range of interesting behaviours, from singing like a whale (the Indri) to dancing across the sand like a ballerina (the Sifaka). Meanwhile the two most widely recognised species – the sun-loving Ring Tailed Lemur and the fear-inspiring Aye-Aye, captivate the hearts of wildlife lovers worldwide. But sadly, all lemur species are officially on the ‘endangered’ list, mainly due to habitat destruction (deforestation) and hunting. UK travellers are drawn to Madagascar to see these fascinating creatures, which live in

GREENING THE MASAI MARA : BASECAMP'S REFORESTATION PROJECT

The Basecamp Tree plantation was established over 15 years ago to revive the Talek river ecosystem by addressing the pressing issue of deforestation and ground erosion. Since it’s inception in 1998, Basecamp has been involved in environmental transformation practices. Basecamp’s current location has been transformed into a micro-climate covering approximately 10 acres with more than 80,000 trees planted. To date the benefits of this initiative are visible and include the increase of more than 200 bird species within this area with unlimited availability of other animal species especially the small wildlife.

WHO REPRESENTS WHO?

THE PAINTED WOLVES OF KONKAMOYA

If African Wild Dogs could be renamed, tourists might be keener to see these rarely seen canines, and perhaps even contribute more to their conservation. With the most creative, but accurate alternative name being Painted Wolf, it’s clear to see how visitors from Europe and North America would cherish their fortunate sightings and not see the wild dog as something tantamount to a stray, seen at home. Living in small families across sub-Saharan Africa, the total population is believed to have dipped below 10,000. Ruthless and highly successful hunters, packs are known to have huge ranges up to 1500 sqkm. Able to achieve speeds of over 35 kmh, their quarry is often captured through highly coo
