Starbeds at Samara – Newsletter October 2012
The past few days have really delivered for some awesome sightings and a few interesting ones.
Sibella and her cubs are still roaming the south of the reserve. Tendai found her 2 days ago on a steenbok kill and we hope that the cubs will be as good as a hunter as their mom.

Two caracals were spotted in the river bed and we suspect that it might be the same pair that had their cubs there a while ago. Aardvark and bateared fox sightings have also been great thanks to big colonies of active termites.
