The afternoon was, as usual here quite hot – 38 degrees Centigrade. There are just so much things you can and want to do at a temperature like that. A group of black and white colobus monkeys spiced up with a Sykes’ monkey passed over our camp in the late afternoon providing us with some distraction and a lot of photo ops. Just before dusk we headed out to the surrounding woodland areas, a different kind of forest to the one we have our camp, to see what was there. Our trustworthy car (…) did actually start without manual effort – twice! The mechanics got it relatively fixed it seems! Once in the woodland and once dusk had fallen we spotted a Zanzibar galago and heard a Garnett’s galago, in other words the same species as here.

After supper we had the usual trap control before bedtime. In the same trap as three times before we had a new visitor – a Zanzibar juvenile male! This trap is gold worth!
