Hi all

Many thanks to the IT team for getting the cams back up and running - it's really appreciated. I was rather shocked to see that domestic dog in the Orpen Cam highlights, and I'm also very thankful it turned out to be part of an elite poaching unit :D On a sidenote, we had a great sighting of an AWC in broad daylight at Nossob today. A first, I think :clap:

Yesterday's results:

1. No. 1, Close up wildebeest on 7 points
2. No. 4, Wonderful flowers on 6 points
3. No. 3, Active hyena on 5 points

Well done, Melrockson, you got the right combination :D

I hope we will have more sightings tomorrow.

Hi all!

Well the rains have really set in. It's great to see the greenery starting to peek through, even if we have to sacrifice a few sightings! The Egyptian Geese have returned to Orpen and Satara, although there were no mammal sightings. Addo has been less affected by the rains, and we started off today we a nice sighting of zebra. They were distant, as usual. I wonder why they like to stay on that side? A herd of kudu was later spotted, followed by a large herd of buffalo. Nossob has, obviously, maintained its sightings. A black-backed jackal could be seen hunting birds at the waterhole and a good-sized herd of wildebeest was milling around. What may have been the same herd returned at around midday on two separate occasions and also shared the waterhole with another BBJ and some springbok. Wildebeest, springbok and BBJ all returned in the evening. Also, a special congratulations to Vinkie for 10,000 posts! 8) 8) 8)

Today's sightings:

BBJ x3
Buffalo x1
Kudu x1
Springbok x3
Wildebeest x9
Zebra x1

As you may have guessed, I'm going to try to restart my daily sighting reports. It'll be hard work, but it's good fun!

Friday's results:

1. No. 1, AWC hunting birds on 16 points
2. No. 2, Domestic dog on 6 points
3. No. 6, Kibo minding an ellie on 5 points
4. No. 7, Oryx pair on 4 points

Congrats to Schtick, you got the right combination!

Please choose just the 2 sightings today:

1. BBJ eyeing up birds
Image

2. Large buffalo herd
Image

3. Kicking up dust
Image

4. Addo kudus

Hi all

Sightings have certainly picked up a bit today. There were the usual crepescular black-blacked jackal sightings at Nossob last night, along with a nice pair of oryx. Buffalo and elephant could be seen late into the night at Addo. This morning BBJ and wildebeest returned to the Nossob waterhole, along with several herds of elephant at Addo. A lone wildebeest was the only sighting of a mammal at Orpen today. During the afternoon we enjoyed a patch of great sightings. A pair of cheetah was spotted by Lujoli at Nossob. Magnificent! There were also sightings of kudu and warthog at Addo and some very impressive elephant at Satara, sharing water with BBJs. A wildebeest followed them to the waterhole later. Buffalo and elephant sightings continued well into the evening at Addo, as did BBJ sightings at Nossob.

Addo:

Buffalo x4
Elephant x7
Kudu x1
Warthog x1

Nossob:

Black-backed jackal x7
Cheetah x1
Oryx x1
Wildebeest x1

Orpen:
