Got it! :) , On our way in last night we had a aardwolf sighting at the Black Ridges and on our way back in the same area we had another sighting with another one further from the one in the pic, I believe that one of them might be the same one that we have saw on our way in.

We were on the night drive last Thursday with the aardwolf sighting. Totally amazing and beyond expectations! So glad there is a photo to remember it by as my little camera was not working (full of sand I think :roll: ) although the aardwolf posed for so long it is well etched in my memory. Thank you SO much AG :gflower:
