Good evening all
What a night to end of the week :D
Tonight I have find a giraffe close to the restcamp and a large herd of eland 60 or more in the area of Moonrock.
More giraffes in Kukurasiep dry river bed and scrub hare on my way in.
The road to Oranjekom a small herd of gemsbok and klipspringers as well. More eland in the area of the waterhole with a red hartebees as well. A lot of Mountain zebra's as we were also listening the thundering sound as they were running away.

On my way back before Kukurasiep a aardwolf and when just proceeding another pair of eyes,african wildcat.
At the end of the drive a genet.
