My main wildlife goal on this trip—and the main reason we visited Tswalu—was to see my first pangolin. This is one of the “holy grail” African wildlife species, and was the top animal on my wish list. It’s also the world’s most trafficked animal, and a recent multi-year drought hit the Tswalu population hard. We were fortunate to see two pangolins (both tagged with radio transmitters for research), and the first encounter, though brief, produced better-than-expected images in the long grass.
