The abundant nocturnal gecko on pretty much every wall near a light
This species is the common 'rainbow skink' from Kruger. Unfortunately the taxonomy seems to be in flux. Also, there's some confusion because the species is so variable looking across life-stages. Here, I've observed an adult male.
A young rainbow mabuya (I think)
In southern Africa, these guys have red bills.
These are the common diurnal geckos around Skukuza
I think this is G. validus a few other species of plated lizard occur here.
Quite common crossing roads
The only squirrel in Kruger
Nice big male
Not the best picture
While Kruger boasts one of the healthiest populations of white Rhino's in the world, increased poaching is reaching crisis levels. At the time of this sighting colleagues in a SanParks helicopter had their research delayed as the pilot had to rush off to storm a rhino poaching camp in the south east part of the park.
These guys are abundant in the fig trees in Skukuza
There was a whole family of these social mongooses running round Skukuza
