Yep!OWN,each night is different,and the african wildcat and stripe polecat was very close up sightings, a little bit of confusion with the afrikaans name stinkmuishond, as the one guest was really surprised with the small size,but it was a first for her.

Then gemsbok,giraffes and springbok all in one, followed by a few scrub hare.
Also had red rock rabbit,spotted eagle owl and night jar.
On my way back more eland and zebra's in the same area,klipspringers as well.

After the rain also a lot of annual plants,this one had me fooled,only flowers in the evening,still have to find out the name of it.
