What about sightings that were recorded outside the boundaries of our National Parks - do they count as well?

If dead animals off the road count, then it's these three, if they don't then I'll remove the serval. :D

I've seen:

1) Aardwolf - Karoo NP
2) Civet - Kruger NP (near Ship mountain H2-2, and at Tshokwane, and also from most camps at night).
3) African wild cat - Kgalagadi NP & Kruger NP (4 sightings during the day - all within 25 km from Satara camp, and 1 from Satara camp at night).
4) Bushpig - Mapungubwe NP
5) Caracal - Kruger NP (H1-1 near Skukuza (day), and Lower Sabie night drive).
6) Pangolin - Kruger NP (H1-1 near Skukuza).
7) Porcupine - Mapungubwe NP & Kruger NP (from Satara camp at night, and Biyamithi night drive).
8) Serval - Kruger NP (Lower Sabie night drive)
9) Sidestriped jackal - Kruger NP (three of my 5 sightings were in very wet seasons around Pretoriuskop, the other two on the H3 and H1-7).

Just for interest sake: I've seen 6 of the elusive 11 outside the SAN Park boundaries:

Civet (Nylsvley NR), african wild cat (Mabuasehube), porcupine (Makado), serval (Plilanesberg & near Loskopdam), sidestriped jackal (Hwange) & hedgehog (Pretoria).
