Morning all
@ Matthys,looks forward to that visit soon.
@ Caracal, no need to book in advance.

We found spotted eagle owl close to the restcamp as well as on our way back.
Giraffes at Kukurasiep dry river bed and a small herd of springbok on the otherside of Kukurasiep.
Hartmann zebra's at Oranjekom waterhole and a genet on the other side of the Black Ridges.
