Morning,
Just an update. the cam which was at Leeuwdrill was inspected by some kind of predator and the strap bitten off due to this it fell of the 'dropper' and didn’t take any pictures. I did replace it and will tomorrow retrieve both cams from Leeuwdril and Houmoed to post the pictures.

A cam is on the 4x4 trail and will only be picked up next week

I put mine in each camp I was (in September) but due to the grass and the wind... not so many... except for Urikaruus :D

Morning All,

Ok i have retrieved the Cam Traps from the respective waterholes and will start to go through the pics for posting.

Unfortunately I have lost another cam due to predators which saw it as a plaything, the cam which was on the Nossob 4x4 trail mysteriously disappeared, but we will be walking the area to see if we can find it. The trap cam at Houmoed was also investigated by some animal and while doing it they bumped the cam off its 'mountings and therefore not many pictures was taken. The cam at Leeuwdrill took plenty pics whereby 80% is of Eland emptying the waterhole......I will post the best pics from Leeuwdrill.
