Just a small update:
1) Namabies - Has been seen recently around Gunong. Last sighting was quite awesome - she was seen in a tawny eagle's nest eating the chick - on 24th of August 2016.
2) Safran - was seen with a cub near Ljiersdraai. ( June 2016 - we have not had a direct report yet)
3) Haigamas - as this leopardess is the oldest known project leopard(17 years old, and perhaps the oldest known wild leo in the world?), last sighting was a km north of Nossob on 20 July 2016. :dance:
