The animal you spotted was a warthog. Not unusual for KNP but defnitely for KTP.

Can't wait to see those 4 leopards now. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :popcorn: :popcorn: :popcorn:

Then we came across the aardwolf on the road in front but he too ran off into the grass as we came closer. Though we had a good look at him, we were unable to get any good shots.
