Trentonskeeper, Ndloti is indeed correct with the first image - very young kudu bull :redface:
I stand by the other three though :wink:

Trentonskeeper - my guesses at your antelope are the following:
1 Common (Grey) Duiker
2. Bushbuck (young male)
3. Greater Kudu (Young Male)
4. Nyala (female)

Maudoc - your photograph is of a Male Cape Fur Seal.

The last antelope pic is indeed of a bushbuck doe and not a nyala ewe. I see them both on a daily basis. the first picture is of a common duiker as davejenny pointed out.

We saw this bokkie in Marakele at the end of September - was both times we spotted it all on its own.
Am I correct in thinking it is a juvenile Blesbuck? (Have never seen Blesbuck in Marakele)

We spotted this small mouse at Nossob /KTP.
She really was tiny and very fast.
Could it be that this is a Pygmy Mouse

Not 100% certain :hmz: but I think it's an acacia tree rat. Nice photo!

Hello,
I searched some information on acacia tree rat (Thallomys paedulcus).
It looks like my photo, but it appears that it is not present on the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park.
http://maps.iucnredlist.org/map.html?id=21692

May be it could be Black-tailed tree rat (Thallomys nigricauda) that resembles and is also present in the area
http://maps.iucnredlist.org/map.html?id=21691
... but I have not seen it's tail and so i am not really sure with my ID ... :hmz:
