Morning all :D :D :D
@ Lion queen,what you said about our nightdrive sightings are so true,ok just wait for the following.

While driving into the Game area last night and passes the Wardens house I decide to spot on the roof of his house and there was a genet walking around.
A spotted eagle owl and I guess it was the same one that we spot on our way back as well,sitting at the same place where the low water bridge are. Plenty of scrub hare on the drive as well.
A red hartebees at the other side of Kukurasiep and klipspringers on our way back.

Ok, now for the exited moment,and when I spot this in front of the Black ridges I told myself to stay calm,get the camera and take a pic,about twenty meters from us it was just WOW,WOW,unfortunately I could not get a pic,but the sighting is still in my mind and I'm sure for those also who was with me.
A Aardvark!!!! :D

And just the previous time I was talking about the Aardvark sighting in Mokala,and last night I've spot it myself,at the right time,at the right place.
