We found some eland at Kukurasiep dry river bed and a african wildcat at the Black Ridges.
Family group of klipspringers at the bottom of the Black Ridges and gemsbok and genet in the fountain area.
A quick sighting of the genet and not all of my guest had saw it,luckily we found it again lower down in a river bed.

Some also wanted to see giraffes and their wish has come true, 2 large bulls close to the road.

On my way back a larger herd of eland with a lot of sub adults in the area of Moonrock.

Scrub hares as usual, challence me for a race, came dodging in front of the road and just started running in the road :)

Kudu as well.
