This rather timid antelope is the unfortunately titled dik-dik due to its group warning noise of nearby predators. And sadly for the dik-dik with its short stature (at a little over half a metre), nearly every carnivore in the African jungle from lions and leopards to birds of prey and large lizards see it as a potential meal. One interesting protection is that the dik-dik doesn’t drink water and hence can avoid risky visits to waterholes.

Welcome to Travel Wonders
My name is Mark and I’m a keen traveller. In fact, over the last 25 years, I’ve travelled to every continent and over 80 countries. This blog is about the most memorable destinations – the places I regard as the travel wonders of the world. I’m also a keen photographer, and have taken nearly all the photos you’ll see. During my travels, I’ve met some incredible people, seen inspiring places, viewed extraordinary wildlife and scenery and had some amazing experiences, and I’m writing these stories not only to entertain but primarily to inspire others to discover their own travel wonders.
