Hotspot for rhinos: A little mudpool right next to the road on your right when going to BnD from Malelane. Always see them there. They love that hole. Other good place. H10.

Thanks WTM - One of the only two Rhino sightings I ever had was on the H10 in 1996 - the Rhino was about 1 Km from the road. I drove most of the H10 in April (from LS to the S128) and saw one Steenbok and a Lioness.

Nkumbe lookout was not pretty at all but many animals were active down there below. Giraffes and zebras were present. Leopard sightings were noted at Nkumbe itself. so beware and good luck. Many klipspringers around there.

On arrival at Malelane an hour before gate closing time, the veld on the western side of the H3 was busy burning up into the mountains around Berg-en-Dal. We could only drive into the park for half an hour, and then back. Although it was perfect game viewing time, we only saw warthog, two lone impala and two giraffes.

Saturday we drove around Berg-en-Dal, still not seeing much (not that I was surprised, as we only got to the park at 8h30)…..I’m a firm believer that you have to do your part to see the animals you want to see – meaning that you need to wake early if you want to see lion in action and leopard. (Different from Wildtuinman’s “leopard timeâ€Â

Think it was an elephant scull....saw one at Lower Sabie near their sightings boards and thought it could have been an elephant, although I could not see what the teeth looked like on the LS scull - those on the scull beside the road was huge and looked like a grazer's teeth....I don't know what elephant teeth look like, otherwise maybe a hiipo scull?
