Hello, I hope I am not duplicating a topic. Can anyone give me up to date data of the distribution of Predators in Kruger. The last data I can find is that of Paul Funston in 2006. I am curious to know the differences between the north and south. Thanks

Allsort based on my Kruger visits I know that the predator density in Southern and Central Kruger is higher than in the North and Far Northern Kruger (for me it means from Olifants Kamp up further north) .
Perhaps someone who has the knowledge or has access to more scientific data/information will be able to provide you with up to date numbers and distribution patterns.

Without any scientific backing, you are going to see most lions around LS, CB, Skukuza and Satara. Wild dog seen more often in B&D, PKop, Skukuza and CB. Cheetah LS and CB (S28) and H10 to Mlondozi dam. Lots around Satara. I regularly see them between PKop and Phabeni Gate, and PKop and Transport Dam. Leopards everywhere.
Enjoy and let us know what you found!
