Due to her new found independence from her mother, we have now named Little Bush’s cub “Ntsumi” meaning Angel in the local dialect. She lived up to her name this morning as we found her standing aloft a termite mound in a truly angelic pose.
Did you know that Sudan has more pyramids than Egypt? The Nubian civilisation is believed to have begun in 6000BC and reached its peak between 3000BC and 2000BC. However, since they did not develop a written from of their language, most of their history was in the hands of the Ancient Egyptians and the Romans – rival civilisations who were unlikely to be objective in their portrayal. As a result, very little is known about the Nubians. However, recent evidence suggests that there were some Nubian Pharos and that their historical influence was more significant than previously thought.
