Aardvark!

Our friends at the Bushcamp Company in Zambia are always full of fun facts.  They have a series we always guess at called ‘Did You Know?’  This week’s question…Did you know…that guests at both Kapamba and Kuyenda Bushcamps were recently treated to sightings of one of nature’s strangest animals? It may be the first animal in the dictionary, but the aardvark is secretive, elusive and seldom seen. Normally nocturnal, the aardvark lives on a diet of ants and termites.  They can consume over 50,000 in one sitting!
