A group of visitors at Cape Point in the Cape of Good Hope nature reserve had the pleasure of seeing a caracal kitten on Saturday, February 6.

Mehul Damani said the “baby caracal” suddenly walked onto the road and they did not immediately realise what kind of animal they were looking at.

In the video Damani captured, the adorable kitten can be seen on the side of the road near some bushes, looking over its shoulders.

“We saw ostriches, a snake, bontebok and tonnes of lizards but the caracal was certainly the highlight,” said Damani in a Facebook post.

Unlike the recent sightings of caracal kittens, the mother is nowhere in sight.
There are between one and six kittens in the typical caracal litter.
