Subadult hippos are often found play fighting and jumping straight out of the water, playing what can only be described as a type of ”tag”, chasing each other biting, jumping and then starting all over again or until the adults call them back towards the sleeping pod.

Knysna Forest, in some places so dense it borders on impenetrable, is a marvellous mix of ancient trees, both local and exotic. Tree ferns, creepers, flowers and the elusive Knysna loerie, its call heard more often than it is seen, are also part of the forest. The thick canopy of ironwood, stinkwood, Outeniqua yellowwood, real yellowwood, Cape holly, white pear, wild fig, milkwood, Cape beech, bastard saffron, assegai and kamassi trees covers 568 square kilometres between the Krom River and Mossel Bay, sprawling across the southern slopes of the Outeniqua Mountains.

The banded mongoose is stocky and sturdy with a tail that is bushy and is practically as long as its body. Its grey-brown coat is thick and is characterised by bold black or dark brown stripes that run horizontally across the back. Banded mongooses that live in wetter conditions tend to be darker and even bigger than those occupying dryer areas. The underside of the animal is slightly lighter than the upper side, while the legs and the snout are darker. It has a large head with small, broad ears, and its limbs are short and strong. The sharp, strong claws are an important feature that allows them to search and dig for food.
