So am I correct in assuming the caravan will be in Croc Bridge, Skukuza, Satara and Letaba in May, Len? :lol:

Enjoy, Len! I will also be in the park from 24/5 for a week, but no caravan this trip..
Maybe later in the year or Feb/March next year.

We were there last weekend. Driving up towards Mopani, around the Letaba area we saw chameleon, some buffalo, number of eagles, hyena and plenty of elephant. And then driving around the camp area we saw some hyena, buffalo, elephant and of course plenty of hippo, waterbuck, impala and crocodile and the rest of the "locals". Sorry, I don't have the road names with me at the moment.
Then from camp we saw various owls, storks, elephants, waterbuck, hippo, bushbuck, a lovely water monitor digging a hole near the fence and plenty of kingfishers.

Will post a full report sometime soon though :D

Must say the photography was difficult with the weather and the long grass when driving, but I tried my best :hmz:

We had the unusual sighting of a large branch crashing down off the big tree right in front of the restaurant while there last month. :shock:
Thankfully no one was sitting on the bench at the time.
