A Stripe Necked Mongoose is miffed

“Why do you want to know if I have snake venom for sale? Oh wait, you think I’m Rodney, the dodgy jungle salesman don’t you? I am quite offended! First of all I am a Stripe Necked Mongoose, not a Ruddy Mongoose like Rodney. My kind look nothing like his. We have long fore-claws and our fur is dark brown or grey-yellow or sometimes even orange-yellow. We also don’t fancy humans very much. Noisy bunch, always jumping to conclusions, hint hint. So we keep away from them and stick to forest areas that are close to a water source.”

Fun Facts

“Why? Because of food and safety! If you find a good waterhole, there are plenty of frogs and crabs to be found in it, and nicely sized prey like mouse deer, black-naped hares, rodents, fowl and reptiles turn up for a drink. It’s like a constantly replenished buffet! The National Parks and Sanctuaries are the best places to live in. You know, some of my family can be found high up in the mountains too, they seem to like the cold weather there. I’m rambling on like we’re old friends. Right, you need to find Rodney. Go straight towards that hill, I saw some carrion there, Rodney is sure to be there snacking.”


Story of the Photo

This Stripe Necked Mongoose obligingly posed for some photographs when Dilum encountered him on a morning safari in Wilpattu National Park. Although quite shy around people, they can be spotted near the waterholes around the Mahoora Tented Safari Camp in Wilpattu!

Much more than just a great place to stay

"Thanks to our guide Avinka we had five great safaris staying four nights just after reopening this February. The staff made us feel so very welcome during the entire stay.

The safaries are just wonderful, and having a great guide in your vehicle makes a big difference. Avinka can spot animals you would never see and we were even lucky enough to sight leopards on the trees, close to our vehicle, and also running through the field. The wildlife is so exciting that you will have a great experience even if you don‘t see any leopards. We also had a great driver, which is essential if you drive through difficult territory. You are being taken care of the entire time, so even for those who do safaris for the first time, you will always feel safe.

The camp itself is very comfortable, you get everything you can think of, and on top of the great food being served with so much attention and friendliness. You also get wonderful vegetarian and vegan options. They put on bonfires at night, which makes it unforgettable.
When booking and making plans, you get great support from the headquarters, even if it gets difficult since you have to change your plans.
The best thing what can happen to you at the end of a vacation is when you are a bit sad to leave the place, having experienced something to remember forever, and the team does everything for this to happen. Thank you so much"
