Strictly SANParks:
Civet - Marakele & KNP Mopani area 09.2013
Sidestriped Jackal - Nightdrive with Stanley at Mopani on 23.09.2013.

Honey Badger - 3 all in the Mopani area during September 2013 of which one was paralyzed in the back and hind legs. I was over the moon with happiness when I saw the two honey badgers together but it promptly changed to sadness when we saw that one of them was pulling itself with the front legs because of the paralyzed back.

I've seen:
Civet - one kept coming to visit us at the fence at Malrlane
AWC- several times- S100 early morning, night drives, visited us in Satara camp. The best one was when one literally ran over my feet in Skukuza camp while braiing one evening!
Serval - dirt road near LS, 2 within 20 mins near Renosterkoppice and Transport Dam!
Side stripe jackal - first visit to the park, didn't know I'd seen anything special til much later

Gemma :-)
