Hi Everybody!

I am n guide to Knp and do about 15 to 23 days of game drives to Kruger a month. Being in this situation i can try to update the forum members on a weekly basis off what's been happening where in the park. Most of my game drives is done south so most of the reports will be based on activity's south of Tshokwane. I will also try to give you guys some pics of what have been seen. Please comment on some of these sigthing's if any of you where there.

Just to recap of what was happening since January.

The beginning of January was still busy with holiday makers in the park meaning that quite n lot of traffic at certain sightings.
A lot of rain where recorded all over the park with made it quite difficult finding game. The most amazing thing was that there were lot of cheetah sightings reported. 7 cheetah :dance: where spotted together on the Napi road(H1-1) between Transport dam and napi boulders.It seems to be a mother with 6 12 month old cubs. This was most amazing for most of the guides as as cheetah only gets between 2-3 cubs at a time( It took some believing from the guides that didn't seen them). There where also Cheetah seen at these places:
Mother with two cubs on the H3 and S112 mostly hanging around Kwaggaspan, single male patrolling the road down to transport dam, single male spotted almost every 3De morning just outside Skukuza towards Kruger gate, a female with 4 cubs on the Salitje road(s30) about between 8 to 12km from the H12( where seen about 12 times in the month), 2young males just outside Croc bridge normally early morning and again at around 5 in the afternoon, single male on the Randspruit(H5) for the first 5km's from the S114.
Lions where difficult to find with most of the sightings early morning before 9. Pride recently seen was at Nyamundwa dam on the doispane(S1) road(2 males 4female 5 sub adults) the sand river pride( 3 new males that have taken over the pride in the beginning of the month 4 female and 6 sub adults) The klipspringer koppies pride( consisting of 12 members) normally hanging around the H3 napi road junction and transport dam and as far as 6km on the S65, mating pare at the N'waswitshaka waterhole on the S65( Normally two males and 6 female in this area), pride of 8 in the S118 S119 S114 area, pride of 5 Berg en dal H3 junction, pride of 7 at the H5 H4-2 area( made a buffalo kill 1km north of the H5 On the H4-2 and 3 young males and 1 old female that are patrolling the S114 and S112 area( where only not seen twice the hole month). Leopard's where scares with sightins scattered all over the south. Ele's have moved a way from the river(H4-1 where over all very quite with only scattered leopard sightings reported along this road) and are mostly scattered to the west with the most seen around the H3 area. There were not lot of rare sightings around.... interesting was that lot of the guides were seeing scrub hare in the middle of the the day witch is a nocturnal animal. Birding on the other hand are excellent with all the migrants being back and most of the birds busy nesting.

February didn't chances much as lot of rain also recorded. there where fare less cheetah spotted but wild dog where seen on regular basis. A female lion of the klipspringer koppies pride where seen on n few occasions on here own spending lot of time at the rocky out crops by the H3 Napi road junction. Later in the month we realise that she as had cubs and are hiding them a among the rocks. 3 very small cubs where spotted with her at the end of the month. The cheetah with the 6 cubs where seen again but seem to spend lot of time on the S65. Eland where seen again at Shitlhave dam(on the Napi Road close to Pretoruiskop. the group where last seen in November 2005. Pretoruiskop are well known for its rare antelope sightings. Good chance to see Sable, Lichtenstein's hartebees,tessebe and common reed-buck in this area)

March sow record rain fall for the area with over 400mm recorded in certain area's in the park. Stransly the game viewing was good dew to all the rain as animal tend to go to the roads as it is dry than the veld. the marulas where also falling from the tree,s and lot of ele's were seen in area's with have lots of these trees. Tourist numbers where picking up as well De to public holiday;s in this month.

April the month with most guides don't love...... the end of the rainy season and grass chaching colour making it very difficult to spot any thing,start of the most busy season in the park coursing huge headache in the park at sightings.....poor lions caught a giraffe on Easter holidays in the middle of the road at the Berg en Dal H3 junction with coursed the biggest traffic jam of the year. The section ranger had to pull the carcass of the road just to make sure there where some sort of n traffic flow(all fairness it did not help much) Lion sightings where seen on the same places regally and the word spread at night time at camps with let to early morning speeding to these areas( very sad) It also seems that most of the migrants of birds have left.

May sow lot of the water in the veld area slowly drying up and most of the animals are returning to the river and waterholes. The Sabi river are starting to produce more game with ele's returning in large numbers. The middle of the month sow 5 young male lions killing a giraffe at olifantsdrinkgat waterhole. They spent 7 days at the carcass. The mother cheetah with here cubs have moved to the Doispane road and recalure sightings where seen on this road. The klipspringer koppies pride have moved and are seen more around transport dam than at the rocky out crops. The Mother with her cubs have also moved. A female leopard with two cubs have made a kill at the S65 and S1 junction last week. They spent 3 days at the carcass. She has also been seen regally in this area. The Sand river pride have moved to the Sabi river side and have been seen every day for the last 3 weeks. They spent most off there time a long the river and the gravel loops on the road to Lower Sabie from Skukuza in the first 7km's. The South down to Malelane is starting to quite down of game. This area is good summer time but difficult in winter. there are always at least good rhino and leopard sightings here

I have just taken a over all off what as been happening in the last couple of month's and will give a more set out report of sightings on n weekly basis. if you have any question's about certain animal movement please post it i will try to tell you what is going on. Please had on if you have any thing to had to my report. As stated most of the report will De based on the south but if i hear off any thing up north i will try to update you

I hope that some of you will find this info useful on your next trip to Kruger.

Can't wait to hear from you!!!

P.S. SORRY FOR THE SPELLING AND USE OF WORDS. I AM N BOERTJIE AND EVEN THE SPELL CHECK FINDS IT DIFFICULT TO FIND THE RIGHT WORD I WANT TO USE :doh:

Hi all

Here is my weekly update:

Winter is here in full force and I am freezing my butt off in the morning. Water in most part of the park is drying up and rivers and drinking holes are getting more active with game movements. The road down to Lower Sabie from Skukuza is starting to deliver more sightings than the last 5 month’s. The H10 is also returning to its former glory with Zebra and Wildebeest slowly returning from up north and the Lebombo Mountains. Small herds are mostly visible north of the S129 and the Munshe back loop…… and it wouldn’t take long before the predator’s is also returning to this area. The biggest herd of buffalo in the park (+- 800) is also back and been spotted on the Munshe back loop today. Between the S129 and the Mafortini road on the H10 the road past quite close to the Mlondozi River, there are a spot that you can count about 30+ Hippo sunbathing out of the water….. it seems that this is a common sighting a long the river’s these day’s and that regular sighting’s will a accurse till late September when it start’s getting warm again.

Monday to Wednesday it was a bit quite with most of the guides struggling to find game. There were lion spotted every day on the Sabie River close to Skukuza bud seems that the first couple of cars where the only one’s to get a glimpse of these cats. Sighting's where also reported at….. 2 female & young male on the upper Mhlambane(S118) , one full grown female with one young female & male on the S114 2km from the Napi road in a open area busy hunting( open area called steenbok vlakte…. They been seen here 4 times this week), 3 young males and female on the S112 and a pride that killed a Wildebeest 2km outside Berg and dal camp. On Wednesday we spotted 2 full grown Male lions chasing a group of 6 young lions (4 female & 2 males) down the Diospane road close to Nyamundwa dam. We where not sure if the male chased the youngsters out of the pride or that it is youngsters from another pride looking for a new territory….we sow them again this morning. Lions also most of the day’s at the H5 H4-2 junction, pride at a zebra kill on the Gomondwane loop, two male’s killing a young giraffe on the Kruger gate road 2km from the Skukuza 4 ways.
A pack of 6 wild dog where seen today on the H3 close to the S112 junction heading in the direction of the Napi.
The 7 cheetah where sighted on the Napi between the Watergat road and Klipspringer koppies heading in a ninthly direction on Friday.
Leopard’s where difficult to see this week with reports of some sightings along the Sabie River and big male seen on the Diospane close to the S4
There were at least many rhino and elephant sighting’s all over the place. No rare other sighting’s…..almost forget black rhino seen on the northern section of the S128

I hope same off you will find this info useful. Will try to add some more during the week and upload same more pics

Back to your reported sightings, I noticed that none of your recently reported sightings have been in the Croc Bridge area.

I am going to Ngwenya next week & was hoping you might be able to assist me with any predator hotspots.
Also are the lion pride near the H4-2 - H5 intersection still in the vicinity


Thanks for the reply spot-a-cat.
Its coming to quite season now and not many of the guides have been working from Croc bridge. Coming in at croc-bridge in the early morning are always an excellent idea. As many books quote that the highest concentration. of game in Kruger are south of Lower Sabie.

I spoke to one of the guides of Marloth park and he said that there are allot of activity down south. A pride off lion are regalery seen on the tar road at the H5 junction. Duke are also seen on the S28 almost every day. A pack off 14 wild dog hang around the gate. At hippo pools the park put a guide there because of a leopard female that got two very small cubs there. Apparently he take you to have a look at here. S28 always have good game with lot of rhino, elephant, buffalo, zebra,wildebeest, kudu and lots more. The S89 is also a good bed late afternoon with leopard and lion seen regalery here

Sorry I can't be off more help, but if I here of anything I will post it on the forum.
Hope you can uses some off the info.

I couldn't find the S89 on the map, is it nearby Croc Bridge?


Sorry spot-a-cat about the misunderstanding but I was revering to the S82. Most of the roads in the park we as guides now by name. This loops name is " Mativuhlungu " and if I tried to spell it with out a map in front of me it would have come out completely different. I try to remember the number but obviously got it wrong. SORRY ABOUT IT

Just to set the record straight - the guard that is stationed at the end of the Hippo Pool road is there to take people to see the hippo in the river. It has been that way for donkeys years. We have spoken to this field guide before and he has in the past seen a leopard who used the rocks there as a den but not this year. He is armed and takes people specifically to see the hippo.


Yes Penny I agree with you but since the floods of 2000 the park didn't put a guide there on a permanent basis. I visited Hippo pools for the last 6 years about 30+ times a year and in this we only came a gross a guide twice there. The first time was in 2003 and he told us that it was unsafe to go onto the rocks as there were a female lion and cubs in the area. The second time was earlier this year and he was there to take people who was interested on a walk along the river. From 2000 to 2004 you could hardly see any hippos from here. The leopard that is seen there now was spotted for the first time 3 weeks a go. I myself cant say if this is true or not but this is the update I got from the Guides working down South.

Hi Dirk, we have just returned from 2 weeks at Ngwenya and travelled the south of the park almost on a daily basis.
I must admit this was most probably one of our more quieter years as far as the predators go, mainly I think, as the grass is still very long and water plentiful throughout the region.
My family were fortunate enough to see 6 lions on the S25 on the one day we did not go in. Sods law!!!
There were numerous sightings of lions on the boards tho for, as you mention, at the H5/H4-2 junction and also at the end of the Duke dam road.
We went to Hippo Pools and spoke to Daniel a week ago and he told us that the leopard was not in the area currently but I spoke to a lady at Lower Sabie the week before and she had seen a leopard kill a scrub hare right there on that road and his spoor on a walk with Daniel down to the river.
There are currently 3 cheetah being regularly seen on the S28 in the vicinity of the Ntandanyathi Hide.
Good luck, hope you can be in the right spot at the right time. :wink:

Mark Chowles would like to know what time of day the wild dogs at Kwaggas Pan were seen.


Normally between 07h00 and 09h00. They have been spotted about 2 weeks ago in the late afternoon.

The guides also think that they may have a den in the area.
I also spoke with one of my friends living in Komatipoort and he said that there are also a pack seen allmost every day close to Croc brigde( Early morning and late afternoon)
