No children, no bananas.....just wildlife

Baboons and not a windscreen wiper in sight.






Baby learning some skills

Still no chimps, but this counts as very close.

Blue monkey (bear with me I've only got a little camera)

Great blue turaco

White naped raven

Mona monkey

House mate

Fearsome new security pairing in town

Sunrise on Lake Kivu

Napolean Island, Lake Kivu

Bad place to stand

They come back pretty quickly, but this is not really good tourism.....what's worse is someone's put cows on the island and the number of trees is diminishing rapidly.

Some fish, and the 3 in a row boats used to hang nets tocatch them. These sambaza fish are all over markets in Rwanda.

  1. Nice shots of straw-coloured fruit bats (Eidolon helvum)! Would you add your photos as a citizen-science observation to the AfriBats project on iNaturalist?:

    AfriBats will use your observations to better understand bat distributions and help protect bats in Africa.

    Please locate your picture on the map as precisely as possible to maximise the scientific value of your records.

    Many thanks!
