You're right JDW - many people did. The car in front of us missed him, while 2 cars coming the other way slowed down but didn't see him and carried merrily on their way. I would have quite happily told them what we were looking at if they had stopped to ask :doh:

I know it's a cat, but woof, those are great photos!

My wife and I were at Addo from Oct. 21st through the 25th and saw no cats during our explorations of the southern half of the main park area, but we were fortunate enough to encounter a Caracal on foot near the beginning of the Tree Dassie Trail which runs through the Alexandria Forest area of the park. They are slinky little stunners!

Kind regards,

Adam
