"Old Road" re-opened. Sometimes affairs seem to get worse but not always. The last stretch to "Pugu Hills" has been improved by re-opening the "old-track" (hopefully it will survive the coming rains). Take the right turn some 800 metres after the branch-off to Chanika in Pugu Kajiungeni at the petrol station without nomination. There is a house on the right with a blue roof (see photograph and click to enlarge). After some 200 m. take dirt road to the right until you reach the bamboo gate (which you can lift). After bamboo gate turn right you will end up at iron bar (please blow your horn at bar) For route map click for route map

Almost 15 years we hardly saw the bush baby but when we started feeding them after the dry spell of 2000 - 2006 they are hard to be missed at the camping hill, even before dusk. But the good times are over while we stopped feeding. click for short film . On youtube a HD version can be found click for HD

Most times I do the 1 K. nature trail at Pugu Hills, there will be something to see. Just listen and look around something will be moving and nature changes, always. Have a look at youtube just close to the gate click youtube . The nice elephant shrew with his/her flexible nose. I did not count but could be the four toed elephant shrew (Petrodromus tetradactylus)?

Some guests are a bit disappointed about the wildlife at Pugu Hills. Please follow this link find wildlife . We do have to admit that it is already 6 months now, since the last lion passed by. By the way apart from the occasional snakes looking for a frog, the Nature Pool attracted the first water bird a young long tailed cormorant paddling around and diving for our nature fish cormorant
