The Breathtaking Caracal

These stunning images of a caracal were sent in by Jaap Wildeboer. What a breathtaking animal and amazing sighting! They were taken on Jaap’s recent trip to the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park.

From Jaap: “We saw this caracal with its young springbok kill early on Saturday 30 March near Houmoed in the dunes. It rained 77mm in two days and on Sunday 31 March it was still there soaking wet, next to its now bloated kill.”
