Morning all
Sightings from 10/05

A herd of eland close to the restcamp and a herd of springbok lying in the area of Moonrock.
Scrub hare's and a spotted eagle owl as well.

Then on the other side of the Black Ridges on my way to fonteintjie below a ridge a pair of eyes which I have spotted from a distance and kept the spotlight pin pointed to it,when we came closer you can actually hear some loose stones/rocks falling as the leopard slowly runs up to it and over it, a quick sighting filled with exitement.

In the area of the Black Ridges on my way back a african wildcat,just lying there and on the other side a red rock rabbit.
Close to the restcamp a porcupine running on the the road and then dodges on the side only it's rear end visible.
