Morning all
After 47mm of rainfall, there is a drop in temperatures, and what a nice cool way of doing a night drive in such lovely weather,looking forward to the colder months.

2 Family groups of klipspringers, several red rock rabbits and scrub hares.
We found Hartmann zebra's on 2 separate occasions, a herd of springbok with 1 male really in the mating game.
Nice sighting of a gemsbok bull a bit on the lower side in a gully with us looking from above.
Spotted eagle owl and night jar as well.

Morning all.
Spotted eagle owl sitting on a branch and then flew over the road just to sit on another, after which it finally flew off into the dark. We found a herd of eland in the area of Moonrock and then scrub hare as usual.

Close to Oranjekom waterhole there was a herd of springbok with 2 males fighting,very silent and the distance was about 200m or more, and we could still hear the impact as they were clashing horns.Hartmann zebra's close as well as giraffes.

A quick sighting of red rock rabbit at the Black Ridges and on my way back another Hartmann zebra stallion which seems to be injured.
At the end of the drive 2 porcupines.
