Again successful sightings day. :thumbs_up:

:( the photo of the Eland but nature has it's reasons for this to happen. Can just imagine the smell could not have been pleasant.

Klipspringer posing beautifully. :clap:

We start off with a klipspringer in the area of Moonrock and at Oranjekom waterhole we had Hartmann zebra's which did not spend much time at it,after which they make sure they reach the more rocky area of the Black Ridges.
Giraffes was drinking while some of them had still moving towards the waterhole.
More zebra's in the same area and 6 Kudu bulls feeding on Euphorbias with a small herd of springbok in the same area.
And in the area of Holombacht another group of zebra's.

On my way back spotted eagle owl,scrub hare and a large herd of eland in Kukurasiep area,as well as more eland close to the restcamp as well.

Leopard tortoise as we enters the Game area and another smaller one a bit further.
We had springbok in the Oranjekom area and visit the viewpoint as well.
On the other side of the Black Ridges a eland bull and the smell of the dead eland is really something now.
Klipspringers very hard to see and Hartmann zebra's a bit further.
Kudu bulls close to Holombacht area with another group of hartmann zebra's in the same area.

A few scorpions on our way back and a spotted eagle owl close to the restcamp. Scrub hare as well.
