At Kamqua we were told there was Lions about 4 km on the Mata Mata road and after a quick bite we went north to look for them.

I don’t think the Springbok appreciated the sighting as much as we did.

There was a Slender Mongoose under the tree. He later went up the tree and the bird flew away.

Our second last sighting for the first full day in the Park was this Brown Hyaena one hundred meters before Twee Rivieren Camps gate. He/she was in the road and then ran into the Botswana side.

Day three. 5 May
We were on our way to Nossob camp for 5 nights. I desided to take the long route, Leeudril, lower dune road, Auchterlonie, Kamqua, upper Dune road, Dikbaardskolk to Nossob.

Close to Leeudril we had our first African Wild Cat sighting this year.

The lower Dune road delivered nothing special.

On the Mata Mata road was this typical sighting.
