I think that these maybe two Eland. :big_eyes:

Cammers keep your eyes peeled and save anything that you are not sure of.
The more images there are the easier it is to make a positive ID

Any suggestions are welcome


GISS doesn't seem right for eland... :hmz: Think them're kudu...

Thought my eyes were deceiving me for a moment last night, but there was definitely something scuttling along by Orpen...

Here's a no-animal shot for comparison

Anyone got any thoughts on what it might be? Mongoose? Genet? :hmz:

Not totally sure... wondered whether it is some kind of weaver - maybe a young one? There's a lot of weaver nests to be found around the main camp area behind the cam.

Looks a bit biggish for a caracal? I'd go for hyena.
