Walking Wild – The Samango Safari

The Samango Safari includes a hike through indigenous mistbelt forest and grasslands, beginning at Lemonwood Cottages on the edge of the forest in the Dargle Valley conservancy in the midlands of Kwazulu Natal.

Friends in high places: The vervet (Chlorocebus pygerythrus)/samango (Cercopithecus albogularis labiatus) relationship

While following up on the fascinating relationship between two species at one of our study sites - a matrix habitat where humans and nonhuman primates co-exist - we came across the vervets and samangos eating small yellowish, hairless, figs plucked off the branches of an evergreen Forest fig.
