Hi Trudie :D :D

I think that would be one of the yellow mongoose that live in the stump near the waterhole :thumbs_up:

Lovely sighting :gflower:

I have only seen them once or twice before in my 5 years of camming.
From memory I think they come in from the Botswana side during drought? :hmz:

Hopefully someone can clarify that for us :thumbs_up:

Hi Mel and Rita, stunning sighting and surely something to get very excited about!!! :clap: :clap: :clap:

Yes the Eland do come from the Botswana side when there is not enough water available.

will surely keep my eye on Nossob cam for more sightings!!

Thanks so much for saving!!

Looks like a Bat ear to me. Or am I judging the size wrong next to the rock.
I live in my own little world. But it's okay they know me here.

I'm thinking its a cat of some sort as I can see spots. The animal looks too small/wrong for a hyena and too large for a bat ear. Could it be a a serval!!! (I'm not even sure they are in that area though. :hmz: :hmz: Just my thoughts
