I love these updates!
But I'm just wondering if we should leave out how many rhinos you saw?
As it will give an indication how many there are near berg en dal to the wrong people?

Thanks

:hmz: it's well know there is a lot of Rhinos in the South... no need the forum to know how many, where, which color...

Hello Forumites

Leopards sightings is so interesting at the moment, I had 2 Leopards at steilberg, another one I have spotted it on the turn off of Timfenene loop, Lions were also been around, I also had Black rhino, elephants, white rhinos, impalas, giraffes, kudus, water Bucks and large spotted genet. Madagascar Cuckoo still around the s114, if forumites are around I can give the direction on where to look for it.

Just returned from six nights at Berg en Dal and had an incredible week. Seven, yes seven leopard sightings and then interesting sightings such as serval and honey badger. Two of the leopards were on the Matjulu loop (possibly the same one twice) as well as the badger.

Animals at our campsite included leopard tortoise, dwarf mongoose, cane rat, genet and a handful of scorpions during Friday nights storm - obviously they were looking for dry ground.

First time staying at Berg en Dal and thoroughly enjoyed it..!
