Cool Nocturnal Sightings

As we are going into winter with colder and longer evenings, and together with that the shorter grass, we have been fortunate the past couple of days to have seen quite a variety of nocturnal animals.  The other night we came across two honey badgers playing around, a very special sighting as they can be hard to spot and I haven’t seen one in months!  As we drove past a waterhole, we found a caracal drinking water.  He was extremely relaxed, and we were able to watch him for a while.  Just before we arrived back at the lodge, a civet also crossed the road, and while trying to look for it, two porcupines came walking down the road.  I am looking forward to what the rest of winter might have in store for us.
