So anybody of you experience a bat flying into you while on a Game drive? Well it happen last night,it was just a scream at the back,standing up and stamping her feet, the bat was lying on the seat,after removing it we continue, at that stage it was also all we have seen.

I found the same 2 kudu bulls and gemsbok bull in the area of the Black Ridges as well as the family group of klipspringers.In the area of Oranjekom a large herd of eland and giraffe close to the rest camp.
Scrub hare was found throught out the drive.
