Hi all

Sightings have certainly picked up a bit today. There were the usual crepescular black-blacked jackal sightings at Nossob last night, along with a nice pair of oryx. Buffalo and elephant could be seen late into the night at Addo. This morning BBJ and wildebeest returned to the Nossob waterhole, along with several herds of elephant at Addo. A lone wildebeest was the only sighting of a mammal at Orpen today. During the afternoon we enjoyed a patch of great sightings. A pair of cheetah was spotted by Lujoli at Nossob. Magnificent! There were also sightings of kudu and warthog at Addo and some very impressive elephant at Satara, sharing water with BBJs. A wildebeest followed them to the waterhole later. Buffalo and elephant sightings continued well into the evening at Addo, as did BBJ sightings at Nossob.

Hi all

Isn't it fantastic to have the live cam at Orpen? It really gives you that extra sense of being in the bush! At Orpen it seemed rather quiet early on, bar a few kudu and an impala. However, that all changed with the wonderful sighting of a wild dog! Unbelievable!! During the day, Satara witnessed zebra, wildebeest and a ground squirrel, with a small herd of buffalo coming to drink later on. Last night, buffalo and scrub hare visited Addo and today they were followed by kudu and elephant, along with some gorgeous shots of Kibo, thanks to Danie. Nossob was full of generic game such as oryx, wildebeest, springbok and BBJs.

Addo:

Buffalo x1
Elephant x2
Kudu x1
Scrub Hare x2

Nossob:

BBJ x3
Oryx x2
Springbok x3
Wildebeest x5

Orpen:

African Wild Dog x1
Impala x1
Kudu x2

Satara:

Buffalo x1
Ground Squirrel x1
Wildebeest x1
Zebra x1

Yesterday's results:

1. No. 1, African Wild Cat on 12 points
2. No. 7, Big group of cape buffalo on 7 points
3. No. 3, Impalas testing their strength on 3 points

I got the right combination

Please choose 4 pics today:

1. Ellie family

2. Hare bolt upright

3. Impala wandering past

4. Kibo in profile

5. Orpen kudu ewes
