Where about near Olifants did you see it?

I was under the impression that they were found only in the far north - Shingwedzi and beyond.

Are they ever seen in the south?

Dear Yoda,

If you look at my posts and pics above, you will note that I saw one on the Maroela loop outside of Skukuza in 2008. Very rare to see them that far south, although I seem to recall seeing a travel tale of another forumite who also saw one in the same area a few years later.

Kind regards,

Pat

Patto,
Oops, yes, that's what happens when you read only part of a thread :redface:

I have driven the Maroela Loop a few times, but never seen much along there, and have avoided it recently. I guess it is still worth doing for the possibility of seeing this rarity (in the South)
