Interesting Nocturnal Spider

We have run into this species only three times while on safari. They seem to only spin their webs at night and retreat and hide during the day. I wonder if anyone else has run into this spider or something like it before…
Here he is as he hides during the day:

Here his legs are exposed during the day only because he was trying to belay himself away from my hands:
