Nocturnal Bug Spotting

In season we have a “bug lamp” set up at Hondo Hondo, which attracts all manner of moths and other nocturnal insects and bugs. In Udzungwa, there are many endemic insects and other arthropods that you can’t see anywhere else in the world. If you’d like to do some “bug spotting”, please ask the camp manger and we’ll turn on the special Mercury Vapour UV lights. You’ll be surprised at how quickly things home in to the bulb!  Keep checking back throughout the evening because as time passes different species become active and are drawn in to the light.
