Media Release: Interesting Sightings at Augrabies Falls National Park
Date: 25th June 2013
Augrabies Falls National Parks (AFNP) has revealed a bit more about its illusive self this month with three remarkable sightings. A Leopard, Aardwolf and an Aardvark were all spotted in the park.
The Leopard was spotted near Oranjekom on 25 May 2013, during a night drive. The Aardwolf was spotted on 19 June 2013 near Black Ridge and the Aardvark was spotted last night (24 June 2013) near Moonrock.
These sightings are unique in that they are rarely spotted in the park. Make sure to visit Augrabies to try and spot one of these enigmatic animals.
