Wildjohn's Kruger October trip : 2006

Unread postby wildjohn » Sat Oct 14, 2006 11:17 am

Hi forumers,

Once again, traditional trip report - 4 days spent - P/kop, Skukuza, Satara.
Highlight - 3 male cheetah coalition walking up V'trekker road from ntomeni drift, and I followed them all the way up to Josekhulu drift - very relaxed, and followed road, on and off. Apparently rangers have seen this same group all way up to Klipspringer koppies on Nape rd. Big area.
Nyala - Timbavati river,
Lions - Sabie river bed, twice
Many small groups of buff, and rhino about.
Reedbuck - Fayi loop, P'kop
Sable - Fayi loop, P'kop - feeding on short green post-burn grass.
The P'kop area is looking good after post-burn green flush, and game pretty good.
Problems with admin and payments - advice is to do all your payments with HQ in Pta, as they tend to get confused at camps with extra payments etc.

Anyway, all in all, great, and good luck with up and coming travellers to Kruger.
