Tal is one of the best camps to see serval on a sunset/night ride.

We have that Patrick here at Malelane Camp!

hi Granjan, will monitor them for you. i will have one in a leash by the time you get here :wink: hopefully.

no Mandinga, a different Patrick.

the sightings are relatively good currently. actually on the 12th i saw a pack of 18+ dogs on the s145/s36 junction. i was informed they have been around that area for almost 5 days.

hello mites and talamatians.

yesterday sunset drive was very productive. i went with one of our regular visitors, the Ross family and we saw side-striped jackal, rhino fighting, a female leopard which we located by her call and plenty more general game.

later on the night drive we found the two male rhinos still at it. i guess that's how things are settled in the bush. later on we saw a porcupine, then towards the end of the drive surprise surprise, an AARDVARK!! :dance: :dance: :D

that is my definiton of a special day at work. :D

hello Shaheen

we've had some pretty good sightings. the latest being of a kudu kill 1.3km from camp. it was recorded by Xirhombe on the night of the 11th. when i went on the sunset drive yesterday (12th) i only saw hyena but it was still an amazing feeling. leopard and sable sightings have also picked up. i just don't know how long that is gonna last, hopefully till you come :wink:
