Hi, To all the Cheetah lovers visiting the North of Kruger. There is good news for you all. My dad was in Kruger today and he saw 4 cheetahs eating an impala. It was seen exactly where I have put a red dot. There has been sightings reported in that area for the past 4 days. So people visiting the North, Do give Mphongolo loop a chance. :wink: Image

13 february 2012 - S90 (Old main road near Satara), about two kilometrs after turn-off with H1-4.

They were far away. For me the first time I saw four cheetahs together.

Jealous Impisi! I travel the old main road for that exact reason! Those four have been reported as high as Bangu :D

Staying in the Satara area ... here are the Sweni Bros I saw in December. 1km South of the Sweni river on the H1-3.

Streeetching!

On several occasions we came across a group of four hunting cheetahs in the S90, S100, S41 triangle. Does the pack have a name? :hmz: We started refering to them as the Four Amigos
