Maybe you can show them the cam-highligts. That gave my kids a good impression of what they could see.

Hello - this is the first time I have responded to a post and also first time I have tried to include a pic - I really think I found a leopard at Orpen some weeks ago - which was my first 'cat'.

Good luck - the waterholes are amazing.

That's indeed a leopard. 8)

On the cams it's possible to see all the animals occuring in the respective parks, in fact you have a good chance you'll see animals which you won't see when you're in it, as they are either too shy and run away from cars, or are noctural. (When you're not allowed out of camp.)

Only the smaller ones give a little problem. Sometimes that is. Snakes are hard to see, but! We've had captures of lilac breasted rollers flying away from perching on top of the cam,spiders crawling over the cam... Anything is possible,

Oh! Nearly forgot, even hippo's on Orpen cam! (Water is far away!)

Nah, I don't think it's an eagle... The beak is in the water on the left... At that angle, it just looks like a ruffled up duck...

No idea what it really is.. but I don't think it's a raptor of any sort.

Pretty much so, it looks to me. I wonder if you have a Side Striped Jackal there, in which case you have managed a very rare sighting.

By the way, welcome One-a-B :D

The tip of the tail is not white enough to be a SS in my opinion, but they do occur in the area. I've not seen a ss for a couple of visits now :|
