The Black-backed Jackal of the African desert. Scavenging and playful by day, loud at full moon, as their cries fill the Kalahari nights, joined by the familiar sounds of barking geckos, plovers, owls and crickets, making visits to the Nossob hide, in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, memorable and exiting
One of the cutest nocturnal visitors was a springhare, jumping like a kangeroo, it's beautiful round eyes shining brightly in the spotlight. The arrival of seven spotted hyenas drinking at the waterhole, the ultimate highlight www.eminienaber.com
God made you to be wild and free. Not tamed and caged and when you finally embrace this fact, you will walk the road of life your own way, not someone else's. At peace with yourself and your Creator - Chris T Atkinson

The perky black & white Pied Kingfisher with it's distinctive noisy call does not sit for a photo. Extremely agile with their heads constantly bobbing and their tails flicking up.
The eye of the Pied Kingfisher are protected by a bony plate that slides like a screen over the eye when it plunges into the water at a high speed. The plate is joined to the frontal bone of the skull.
