This is my 4th sighting of Aardvark in the Park and it is just unbelievable, filled with exitement every time I see this prehistoric animal.

We sat there for a long time reversing +-40 60m back, but unfortunately it has moved into a nearby hole.
Lights were put of and just the silence as we can hear the somewhat thundering echo of it's digging. :D

Definitely going to book a drive when we're there in July!

Augrabies Guru, my wishlist is Aardwolf and Striped polecat if you can arrange it :P
Aardvark would be wonderful too!
