we had our first sighting before leaving camp. There was a strange noise inside the cooler box. We checked it out and found these little fellows

We left the camp at 8:45 am and moved towards Kieliekrankie. This cutie pie crossed the road and tried to hide from us

On the way to Kaspersdraai there was only a red hartebeest. At the waterhole we saw gemsbok and a jackal

11.10.2013 - continued

We made a stop at the Dikbaardskolk picnic site and were joined by the sociable weavers

Image

while the yellow mongoose stayed rather shy in the background

Image

right next to the picnic site there was a juvenile black-chested snake eagle in a tree

Image

joined by a lanner falcon.

At Kieliekrankie we were allocated unit 2 and were very happy to see that the barn owls are still here

At 5 pm we left for an afternoon drive as we wanted to look for the Auchterlonie female and Elena. Our first sighting was a pcg with its dinner

Image

We saw many springboks around Auchterlonie and these willies at the waterhole

some of the springboks tried to walk on two legs

Image

which obviously was not that easy and they had to hold on

a little bit further on we saw the only Verreaux’s eagle owl in plain view

Image

and a common fiscal

Image

All of a sudden my SO hit the brakes again and was complaining about speeding visitors. He said „see what they did“ and reversed. There was an animal and something dark which he thought was blood and made him think of a roadkill. But it was much better than that and turned out to be one of the best sightings of this trip...

The roadkill turned out to be a roadkill – but of a different kind, no humans involved
