Shaun is involved in leopard research in the Waterberg and capured a leopard on film on 28 December 2010 together with this warthog and 9 piglets and of course a baboon. He also managed to capture mountain reedbuck.

Werner Merbold

Two additional photo's received from  Werner, including one of a ratel taken on the farm, and a small spotted genet ( and waterbuck ). The existence of ratel on the farm is very exciting as they are very seldom seen on game drives.

All of the pictures below were taken over 2 nights ( 15 & 17 October 2010 ) by Werner Merbold in one spot on the farm with a trip camera. Few shareholders are lucky enough to see some of these on a game drive as they are mostly creatures that come out at night !!
