One evening when we returned to our hut, we saw a bug the size of the top of a pin which lit up like a flashlight and brilliant red flying things and dazzling blue winged things. A lizard of substantial proportions rooted around in the dirt and bushes in front of our hut. It was at least 60 centimetres long and had a tongue that reached out another 10 centimetres.

Heart officially stopped!!!! <3 We continued to follow her for 10mins until she disappeared into the bush..
I can now leave Africa a VERY HAPPY lady!!!!
