Morning all
Giraffes found one's again close to the restcamp and spotted eagle owl in the area of Moonrock with 2 of them sitting on a rock boulder on my way back.

African wildcat at the Black Ridges and it seems kudu's also favour this area now.
Scrub hare's plenty,

On my way back I followed a two track road from the main road and found a herd of springbok.

Giraffes one's again only scattered this time, we found 4 of them close to the camp, 1 bull at the bottom of the Black Ridges and another 4 of them at Holombacht waterhole.
There is only 10 giraffes on this section.

A large herd of eland at the bottom of the Black Ridges and a smaller herd of gemsbok also at Holombacht waterhole.

Red rock rabbit, scrub hare, spotted eagle owl and african wildcat at 4 different occasions.

Well what I can say now is that this leopard is a female and this is the 2nd sighting that I have of her, the 1st sighting ever with pics of the leopard that we have in the beginning is also another one.
