As the sun sets on Zambia’s pristine and untamed Luangwa Valley, it reveals a hidden world inhabited by some of Africa’s most elusive creatures. A female white-tailed mongoose, the largest of all mongoose species, scans the soil for any signs of a meal. Guided by her keen sense of smell, she is an opportunist devouring anything from dung beetles to eggs and even small rodents. Her search for food will take her up to 8 hours and over 4 km, as she gathers enough sustenance to keep her milk flowing for her 2 young pups back at the den.
