The people from the previous night decided to do another drive.

So in the area of Moonrock we found a gemsbok bull,close up and also busy horn thrashing a white sheperd tree.

Scrub hare as usual and a small herd of springbok in the area of Oranjekom waterhole.
Klipspringers in the area of the Black Ridges and on the lower side a african wildcat.

Then in the area of the fountain a leopard on the other side of a gully, just lying down, licking it's paw.
It look quit big so I assume it must be the male roaming in that area.
On our way back we still found it there,have enought of us and decided to move over the rocky edge.

Hartmann zebra and spotted eagle owls very close to the road, and yes what a cold and windy night it was. :D
