Ronnie, stunning, stunning pictures of the Caracal :D :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

of course I am also as :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: as anything.

I am also enjoying your Jackal, really interesting. What intelligent and opportunistic little critters.

Just out of interest, did you find her in Caracal Valley?

Awesome awesome sighting :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Thanks so much for sharing :gflower:

Hi Melph,

Yes I did spot her in "Caracal Valley" :D

By the way "Caracal Valley"is a nickname that I have given so it's not "official" :naughty:

When I sighted the caracal my thoughts immediately went to you, LS and company :wink:

Jackal are indeed clever and opportunistic animals hence them surviving outside of the park's boundaries :)

J.J. that zebra of yours needs a dentist very urgently!! Can understand why the other one is turning it's face away!

Ronnie L. it's nice to see the sea in the background behind the zebra.

Caracal - Awesome !!

Advice please folks. My husband and sons left Durban for PE at 2am this morning as my sons are cycling at the SA MTB XCO (Mountain Bike Cross Country) near Addo. They are dying to go into the park as it will be a first time experience for them and they are staying close by and cycling nearby. Is there any particular route/road that you recommend - their stay is very short and time limited - they return on Sunday to Dbn

Thank you
