  • ["Every evening at Halali Rest Camp, the garbage cans receive the attentions of a marauding resident honey badger."]

Honey badgers are very rarely seen, as they are not water dependent.

They reside mainly on the plains and in Acacia nebrownii thickets, where their low frame often conceals them from the view of tourists.

The southern pale chanting goshawks often accompany honey badgers when they are hunting and can give away their location. Wherever you see these birds perched on the ground or in low bushes, a hunting honey badger is sure to be nearby. Once the honey badger has had his fill, the birds scoop up any leftover remains of his raid on the beehive. Every evening at Halali Rest Camp, the garbage cans receive the attentions of a marauding resident honey badger.
