Beautiful caracals, Kitsafari!

 

Here are a couple more photos of the same serval I posted before. We watched him hunt quite a while. Sometimes successful, sometimes not.

Wow! some wonderful shots of very elusive cats. Love the caracals, they look so relaxed, which is unusual.

Two shots of a Caracal on the road to Chunga in the KNP, taken on 1 Nov 2011 while I was staying at Mukambi Lodge. Thought at first it was a Serval, but then realised no spots.

@@PersonalPangea great series of serval photos! I hope you haven't photoshopped one of your serval photos to make it look like a leopard hidden in a thorny tree? ;)

Masai Mara in November 2011

 

Had the luck to photograph a caracal an early morning, on my first safari-trip.

 

I´m using a Nikon D3 and Nikon 600 mm.

Those caracal shots are fantastic. Very lucky to see that on your first safari.

The wildcat is really similar to a domestic cat in appearance- it is a beautiful animal

Yes, it is one of my favorite sightings and the first time to see one so close and in daylight. It was stalking three red-billed spurfowl. Just like a house cat....another photo.
