Bheki’s Spear

20131229 - CS3_4609 - E - SIG

Bheki – one of Thanda’s expert trackers – uses a traditional Zulu spear as protection when he goes looking for tracks on foot. This image shows the spear, safely lodged above the dashboard of the gamer viewer. A Praying Mantis was walking calmly along it as if she was posing for a photo shoot. The Thanda guests on the vehicle enjoyed “the show”.
