Morning all
The night starts of with scrub hare and on the other side of Kukurasiep a family group of klipspringers.
In the area of Oranjekom waterhole there was also a family group of Hartmann zebra's with a foal and driving up the Black Ridges a red rock rabbit close to the road.
On the other side we found red hartebees and gemsbok together.

On my way back gemsbok and springbok again and then a aardwolf more or less in the area that we have found the klipspringers.
Another gemsbok close to the restcamp.

Aardwolf in the area of Moonrock with scrub hare following.
In the area of Oranjekom waterhole we found the Hartmann zebra mare with her foal and in front of the Black Ridges a Red hartebees.Klipspringers and a small herd of gemsbok scattered on the other side of the fountain and a small herd of springbok in the area of Holombacht.

On my way back giraffes close to the Black Ridges and 2 porcupines about 20meters from the road, talk about good timing :D and a red rock rabbit also close to the road in the area of Moonrock.

Spotted eagle owl sitting on a rock bed on the other side of the low water bridge and the lights must have been attracted some insects as it flew to something,pic it up and flew off.
Giraffes and klipspringers close to Moonrock and at Kukurasiep dry river bed another spotted eagle owl sitting and waiting for prey as it was sitting close to a pool of water in the road.
A bit further on we came across 2 porupines forraging away from the road :D .
A small herd of Hartmann zebra's close to Oranjekom waterhole and Red rock rabbit at the Black Ridges, overall,lots of scrub hare.

On my way back gemsbok in fonteintjie area.
Now there was also a forumite last night with me on the drive,LizF was doing the spotting on the otherside and in same area where we have the porcupine sighting she spotted a aardwolf :D .
Another quick sighting of another porcupine at kukurasiep dry river bed.
