The animals at the Inn

At this inn we love animals, and as such have several animal enclosures situated around the inn and its grassy areas. Children and other interested parties spending the night at the inn are given the opportunity to join the morning feeding of the animals. You must tell the receptionist the evening before if you wish to take part in the feeding.

EMUS
Our two emus, Olga and Uluru is originally an indigenous Australian species. The male possess a unique droning throat sound while the female possess a drumming throat sound. Several of our guests spending the night in the Kubuka have mistaken the sound as the drumming of the African Bush. Every year around February, Olga lays eggs. The eggs have a beautiful dark green coloration, and are slightly smaller than ostrich eggs. When the female has laid her eggs, the male takes over the roosting, which lasts about 62 days. During this period he barely eats and drinks.

DONKIES
Alfredo and Alfrida are husband and wife. Alfredo has a very characteristic neighing, reminiscent of the sound of an elephant. His noise is often a factor in making the BOMA experience a little more authentic. On the 1st of august 2012 the foal was born. His long ears and sweet nature has earned him the name of Hartvig.

LAMAS
Our lamas originate from Peru in South America. Bonnie was born in 2007 and has given birth to Beauty, born 2011 and Tiki, 12th of May, 2012.

GOATS
Our goats are called Klumpe and Dumpe. Klumpe is a South African Boer goat. She enjoys her food so much that she now has to waddle about, and she constantly chases the other animals away and steals her food. Dumpe is a North African Nubian goat, with a much more moderate food intake.

Ring tailed Coati
2 of our ring tailed coatis, Mulle and Malle arrived at the inn around april 2009. In april 2010 Mille joined the gang, and on the 28th of july 2011 Malle and Mulle birthed 2 cubs, named Bølle and Bob. The Ring tailed Coati belong to the Coati family, a subspecies of the racoon. The Coati originates from South America. Their most distinguished feature is their long snout, used to find food in and under the ground. Coatis are Omnivorous. Because of their excellent skills for climbing and digging, building an enclosure proved quite the task. Their favourite food is grapes, eggs, raisins and cookies, preferably ones with frosting baked here at the inn.

Every animal here is tame enough to be hand fed. Apart from the tame animals, the inn is also home to cats, swans and many other birds. In particular is the nightingale, heard most easily in the early summer.
