Agraham KNP trip reports

Unread postby agraham » Tue Apr 10, 2007 8:45 am

on thursday morning we decided to go to the KNP. i phoned Pretoria headoffice and was immediately told the Park was full, without checking. as i was on the availability site, i ask the lady if she checked as there was a space available at Berg n dal and Satara and was told the Park is full. i phoned Jhb Satelite and got the place in Satara kamp
we entered at Phambeni and saw the usual game elephant whiterhino,impala,zebra kudu,wildebees,and...on a dirt road leopard in the road, we followed it for 500m before it went off the road. during the afternoon we went on the S100 and saw lion-4 . there was not a lot of game around on the s100 but we saw Black rhino near Gudzane, which was worth it.
