A young caracal has been seen moving through the Camps Bay, Bantry Bay, and Fresnaye areas.
Every time one of these elusive cats is seen around Cape Town – usually somewhere in and around Table Mountain – we are reminded of the close proximity in which they live to us.
A trail runner training for the big day came across a caracal, which we now know is called Hermes, and managed to get up close and personal.
We’ve seen a few caracal sightings around Cape Town of late, but this is by far our favourite. Someone’s having dassie for breakfast.
We recently saw footage of a caracal out for a stroll on Lion’s Head, and now there’s another gem snapped yesterday morning in Hout Bay.
An early morning trip up Lions’ Head by two paragliders led to a very unusual sighting, a caracal enjoying a stroll and a light breakfast.
