A large spotted genet (Genetta tigrina) ignores our presence in favour of focusing on a possible meal that’s caught it’s attention. Generally shy and taking for cover of darkness and underbrush, it was unusual to enjoy such a relaxed sighting of this somewhat elusive nocturnal carnivore.

South Luangwa national park, Zambia

Although Canadian by birth, I grew up in Africa and from an early age travel became a regular part of my life. As a result I developed an early passion for my two great loves, Africa and aviation. Being fortunate to return to Africa every year with our own safari company “Explorations Africa”, all of my photos of wildlife are taken in their natural and unstaged settings.

    yes, a lucky sighting by the sound of it, Dan… looks like a halfway morph between a quoll (below) and a cat! :))

  • It really does Carol. Very interesting comparison=)
