Morning all
We had spotted eagle owl last night close to the low water bridge, sitting on a pole on the edge of the water.
A pair of klipspringers in the area of Moonrock.

In the area of Oranjekom waterhole a large kudu bull with a younger one. Also a gemsbok bull in this area.
A red rock rabbit on the far sight of the Black Ridges and lucky us one closer to the vehicle.

On our way back a small herd of eland and as usual, scrub hare's

Eland was scattered throughout the drive, and some of my guest thanks me for new species which they can put to their list,one includes a stripe pole cat.

So here is what we saw:
Red rock rabbit
Scrub hare
Stripe pole cat
African wildcat, two nice close up sightings.

Klipspringers
Springbok
Gemsbok
Kudu's
Eland
Hartmann zebra's
