All except SA hedgehog and pangolin (except for a dead one floating just under the M'Bali Dam wall on the Nhlaralumi River in the Timbavati).

Well, I've seen all except the civet and pangolin (unless you count a pangolin that became leopard lunch!)

The hedgehog and aardwolf was seen twice, sidestriped jackal and serval once, aardvark about 10 sightings, and all the other at least 50 sightings each (ok, the bushpigs perhaps 47 sightings!)

If sightings on night drives count then I have seen the following:

Pangolin - Morning walk from Pretoriuskop
African civet - Night drives
African wild cat - Night drives
Caracal - Lower Sabie Night drive
Porcupine - Lower Sabie Night drive
Serval - Night drives and during the day just north of Satara.
Sidestriped Jackal - Lower Sabie Night drive

All of these have been during my Kruger "career" since 1995 - 2006.
