African Wildcat

African Wildcat

Klein Karoo, South Africa
On my first Safari in Limpopo Province, my hunting buddy and I were watching our PH and tracker scout for bushbuck on the Crocodile River and one of these cats appeared out of the cover. It was hunting and looked for all the world like a tabby cat stray that my wife took in back in Texas, so there was no way that we were going to shoot it. We did not move and it soon hunted it's way across a clearing a few yards away and disappeared back into the vegetation.
We later saw baboons in the same area and eventually took a bush buck each in the same area.
Sounds like a great experience. I’ve only ever seen one in the wild, though we get them in the camera traps regularly.
