Description:

My friend Elmarie and me went for a walk on New Years Day at Kirstenbosch and saw a lynx on the path going up to the Contour Path. Its the first time I have ever seen one. It was totally unbothered by us, and kept walking at a slow pace about twenty yards ahead of us for several minutes, before going off into the undergrowth. The pic was taken with Elmarie's i-phone. Not Bad for a pic taken in deep shade.

The lions of the Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Game Reserve are known to relax up trees. The view must be good and I suspect it to be much cooler up there. Remember to scan trees for more than birds when visiting next time.
