First sights

Sitatunga are a rare type of antelope native to Africa, luckily for us they are abundant here on the island. There are few who stay close to the residential areas on the island, like this beautiful lady below.

This morning, and every day since my arrival I have been greeted by vervet monkeys. They forage close to our research house feeding on fruits and leaves. The berries of a palm fruit are a little too latexy for my taste, but he seems to enjoy them.
