Saw this in the KTP, the Caracal was very old and the jackal followed him.

Thanks guys, it's all about the right time @ the right place. This was our second caracal sighting of the holiday, as we had seen one earlier close to Mopanie. I was over the moon then, untill we came across this one... :lol: Amazingly enough, initially we found him in the morning, and just before we headed to camp that afternoon we found him again at the exact same spot. And that with 2 other cars around.

Only afterwards when I looked at the 40 pics taken of this special cat, did I see he gave us 'the yawn'. So privileged to have experienced it. According to the new Kruger map by Andi and Lorainne Tinker, Caracal are frequently seen near Orpen.
:thumbs_up:
