The waterhole at Holombacht to which I refer so much in my Night drive sightings, this is situated close to the bridge,when driving out from the restcamp there is a water tank and solar panel on the left side and the waterhole is not visible unless there is animals around.

So whenever you are here for a short visit and visiting the falls you might see these lizards and if you are particular interested in them I'm sure you will find them.
Male and female.

Good afternoon all
I've seen a Martial eagle about two days ago on the entrance road in the park sitting on a telephone pole.
Yesterday I was also lucky to see this Booted eagle with it's breakfast, some kind of bird specie.
