Very cool!. At least you also know where to be to see a porcupine between 12 and 2 – lol.

Good job Chris. Capturing animals at night provides new angles for some great pictures. I even enjoyed the giraffe’s legs and feet.

Well done Chris. Just illustrates that perseverance and patience does yield results of finding a leopard, in addition to a few more creatures. Wouldn’t it have been amazing to have had those two pangolins cross your camera trap?!

Chris it is always surprising to see who passed the camera, look at all the different animals your camera photographed. Some unexpected animals and some you were hoping to see, which you did in the end. The camera makes life a little easier for The Rangers to capture the unexpected visiting the hidden camera.

Love these kinds of posts Chris, and amazing what you can learn from the camera traps! Which hyena clan do you think the hyena is from of the three you all see on the reserve?

Been looking forward to this, as I suspect that there is always wildlife events going on at Londolozi other than people suspect.
Why not a camera in the plains area , where the ostriches and cheetahs 🐆 are?

It is really shod idea to have set up a camera trap. So you know who exactly wanders along that path at night.
Good luck that there will be more leopards.

So fun to see what the camera traps “catch!” We put one in our backyard and saw a gray coastal fox at our fountain. Nice to know what’s happening while we’re off in dreamland!

Hope you have a few more of these in the near future.
Have not encountered a porcupine at Londolozi but saw several at Tswalu Kalahari.

I think that camera traps are very cool, and incredibly important for research purposes. Well done!
