Hi Guru, I am off to the KTP in two weeks time and thought about stopping at Augrabies on the way back. Really keen to photograph a Red Rock Rabbit. What are the chances of seeing one on a night drive? Are they very skittish or do they hang around?

Hi Tarsier
Welcome to the forum :) .
There is a good chance of seeing them, I know of at least 4 sights in the area of the Black Ridges where there is a good oppurtunity to find them.
They do hang around.

Thanks Guru. I will most probably stay over and join you on the night drive. Sunday the 16th is when I will arrive if all goes as planned.

Morning all
Dear forumites my time in Augrabies has come to an end, and it was great fun and a experience to post on this forum.
Hopefully I will return to Augrabies in a few years time.
I have accepted a position in Karroo National Park and will start there on the first of March.
Last night was perhaps my last sighting of my Augrabies leopards, and was it with a bang, certainly.

Female leopard with 2 cubs, sitting and walking on top of a rocky hill, unfortunately to far to take pics, but still a good sighting.
Red rock rabbit
Scrub hare

Springbok
Gemsbok
Herd of Eland
Giraffes

How disappointing AG! But I wish you all the luck in the world with your new position! I only wish the starting date at Karoo National Park was 1 May 2014, because we were looking forward to a night drive with you on 3 April 2014! :(

What a wonderful Leopard sighting you had last night! :clap: :clap:

Lots of other sightings too! :dance: :dance:

I am going to miss your postings on Augrabies Night Drive Sightings, but hopefully your successor will follow suit! :thumbs_up:

Good luck and thank you for all your wonderful postings and pictures AG! :gflower:

Thank you for all you have done for ANP AG. :clap: :clap:

I wish you all the best in your new venture. I trust that you will train someone else in ANP to continue this excellent work before you depart, and when you get to Karoo, you will start it there.

Amazing sighting and what a way for the park to give you a send off.
However, it is such a shame to be losing you from the park. Koru and I will miss your game drives immensely! :cry: :cry:

Best of luck in the Karoo and we'll be sure to pop over to say hi. :thumbs_up:
