I remember going up Table Mountain at the end of 1963 with the school cadets. We came a cross a berg adder and a fool picked it up by the tail. We had the Field Ambulance there who injected antivenom. We then made a bier from branches and carried the victim down the mountain to the Ranger's hut. The victim spent a few days in hospital but was fine thereafter.

Last weekend whilst taking some friends visiting from the UK to Cape Point we had one of my most unusual sightings there. We spotted this Cape Vulture soaring high above the Buffelsfontein visitors centre!

I was wondering if someone from SANParks could tell me what the three camera traps on the road to Olifantsbos beach are studying?
They are about 1km on the left before you get to the beach. They are pointing at the ground and so I was wondering if they were studying something unusual?

Hi Astromat;

I have sent an email to my colleagues in Table Mountain and have asked for their assistance in finding out more about the cameras.
