Conservation is not an option.
It's imperative.

Leave KNP alone. Go build a hotel someplace else. Reserves are for the preservation of wildlife.

Taken in the Euphorbia in the parking area opposite the reception in September 2008. There was another one sitting a bit higher in one of the neighbouring trees. Think I'll have to go back and get a sharper pic like Scottm's.

Beautiful pic Dogmad :thumbs_up:

The skopsie at Satara is as resident as the bats at Skukuza restaurant area.

Have also seen a civet at night near Carwash area in Satara in May 2008.
Unfortunately no pics as I was driving thru one of the chalets after visiting some friends.
Need to get there soon !!!

Saw Civet at Punda Maria (right under our verandah!!!) and another Civet at the fence in Shingwedzi on my recent trip...

And a Hyena eating an Impala in Lower Sabie in front of our Safari Tent - the bone cracking woke me up! :big_eyes:
