Morning all
Last night was a very windy night, seems that it was gonna rain but it was not the case.

We found a gemsbok before we reach Kukurasiep dry river bed and giraffes on the otherside of the riverbed.
A klipspringer on the far end, and as I proceed 2 klipspringers in front of us on the side of the road.

In front of the Black Ridges a tourist spot something about 40m from us, lying down on the rock so comfortable,look at us, stand up but not hasty and walk off. :big_eyes: :D

A small herd of eland in the area of fonteintjie and a water mongoose at the end of the drive.

We had a fantastic drive on Sunday - it was our first ever sighting of an aardwolf and it stayed around for quite some time. It sealed a really good night for us as the porcupines were an early highlight. Thanks AG!

Oh, and I know what AG saw the following night... but I'm not going to spoil his surprise!
