Saw it way back from the restcamp, about 18km in the veld close to Holombacht waterhole next to the road.
The picture is a bit deceiving as it is a bit bigger than that.

Leopard tortoise in the area of Moonrock walking on the side of the road and giraffes in Kukurasiep dry river bed.
More giraffes close the Oranjekom water hole and Hartmann zebra's on the otherside of the fountain,followed by another group in the area of Holombacht.
Nightjar also had been seen here.

On my way back a gemsbok in front of the Black Ridges and a small herd of springbok in the same area.
Scrub hare was found on several occasions and a genet and 3 stripe polecats on a slope close to the restcamp.
Spotted eagle owl at the end of the drive.

Seasons are starting to chance,as it is getting darker sooner now.
A large eland bull at the low water bridge and a herd of eland close to Moonrock.
A herd of springbok at Oranjekom waterhole and a genet lying on a rock boulder at the Black Ridges, this was the first sighting that I have to find a genet so relaxing,after a while it find us bored and move off. On the bottom of the Black Ridges a family group of klipspringers.

Also a perfect night for stargazing on top of the Black Ridges after which we drive back.
Scrub hare close to Kukurasiep and a african wildcat, the one with the shortened tail close to the rest camp.
Also 2 spotted eagle owls in Kukurasiep dry river bed.

Thanks so much for your continued work passing on the night drive sightings. :D I will be following this thread much more often as we are planning our very first visit to Augrabies next May. :dance:
We will be looking to do a night drive for sure. Some great things to look forward to! :thumbs_up:
