There was nothing like this when we stopped there unfortunately. :(

Hi Rookie,
On this day when I was traveling on the road that goes past the Spekboom Waterhole I noticed a small herd of ellies some distance away in the bush making their way in the direction of the waterhole.
I decided to stop and wait at the hide. :wink:
My patience paid off as these ellies came to the waterhole :D

Caracal Sighting

While traveling in Addo I spotted this caracal in this stalking position. I quickly stopped my car a and took this pic.

I kept my camera focused on her hoping for a pounce and kill but that never happened.

Image


Instead she relaxed and moved to stand in the shadow for a brief moment.

Image


She then quickly moved on and disappeared into the thick Addo bush
