Wow AG! Aardvark! That is one animal on my wishlist forever! :clap: :clap: :clap:

You were so lucky! What does a Striped Polecat look like? Any pictures by Astromatt maybe? :dance: :dance:

Astromatt, your timing for a nightdrive in Augrabies was PERFECT! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I have to say that the two night drives we did at Augrabies are amongst some of the best drives i've ever had. There is an amazing range of wildlife to see and AG really supplements these with loads of useful information about the animals and the habitat. :thumbs_up: Of course an aardvark sighting doesn't hurt either :redface:

Some of the guides in kruger and else where could learn a thing or two by visiting Augrabies.
