Meet the locals

Puku: A medium sized, rare antelope that likes wetlands and floodplains; males whistle to tells others to stay away from their territory

Wild dogs: Rare, rangy, gregarious hounds that hunt in packs (rather messily). Also called painted dogs or wolves

Wild dogs are highly endangered

Buffalo: Like enormous cows at first sight, until you realise they’re just great slabs of muscle capable of violence. Some say they look at you “as if you owe them money”… Respect

Buffalo are considered to be one of the most dangerous animals in the African wild

Secretary birds: long-legged birds of prey that dispatch snakes with a kick and have glorious eyelashes

The Secretary bird is a fearsome snake wrangler
