Aardwolf last night at the low water bridge which is not far from the restcamp,give us a look and start running,springbok and klipspringers in the area of Moonrock.
Gemsbok were in the area of Oranjekom waterhole.
Plenty of scrub hare and red rock rabbit.
A Black backed jackal,fairly young one was hiding in a bush after which some time it show itself.

On my way back steenbok,and a spotted eagle owl which was seen to late as I was coming around a sharp turn and it was flying of, I back up a bit in the hope to find it again,and lucky us it was still there sitting in a scrub.
Black backed jackal again in the area of the Black Ridges and another aardwolf.

And then the family which I have took out was in Mokala and they have seen a aardvark there spotted by their 11 year old boy while on a nightdrive, so the boy spot a aardwolf this time, unknowingly what it was I told them that they are very lucky to saw it.

Giraffes in the kukurasiep area and a red hartebees in the area of Oranjekom waterhole, also a family of klipspringers in the area of the Black ridges close to the road.
Red rock rabbit and scrub hare as well.
