Good evening all
Last night I've go out earlier as some of my guest was early,we have spotted a pair of black eagles in the area of the Black ridges.
Normaly I will drive for approximately 12km before seeing game,what I also want to say is the comment giving by a tourist that for such a arid area they feel that they are priviledge to see so much,not to mention the nice scenery.
The following was spotted,Family group of Hartmann zebra's and a red-hartebees in the area of Holombacht,this is close to a water hole,gemsbok,springbok,scrub hare and spotted eagle owl was also seen.

Hi AG,
Seems like the porcupine is spotted quite regularly!
Do you have any pictures of how the falls currently look like?
Thank you for posting the sightings.
