The honey badger sighting was a good one in that wesaw it for about two minutes but because it ran away from the road and stopped a distance away, we could not take any pictures.

That is most definitely a very very "WOW" lot of sightings for a weekend. :mrgreen: :roll: :D
Would you say that the W/dog sightings were all different packs wildchild?


Elsa, the wild dogs we saw on Saturday afternoon and during the sunset drive were the same five while the one's we saw on sunday was a much bigger pack on Salitje.
