Missed out on the Mountain Reedbuck seen on every previous visit - must be the veldfires!? Also no Eland which was a disappointment.

Great stuff Naomi :dance:

Have been away since you posted, now trying to catch up. Had any response on the 'Blesbuck'? Maybe try the what animal topic under mammals? Shouldn't really be Blesbuck around Marakele should it :?

Hi All. I am planning on making a trip down (or is it up) to Marakele from Johannesburg. Any advice on the best road to take and the state of these roads. I will be in a normal sedan, not a 4x4.
Also this is my first visit to the park, any advice on the park itself? Activities, the best places for game viewing etc...
I will be staying at Tlope. I read on some threads about the "big 5 section". Is this seperate from the rest of the park, and how long does it take to get there?

All advice will be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

We were in Marakele in October and saw an Oryx just before the entranse to the big 5 area. Have checked through various of the sighting threads as well as Marakele's information page and could not find any reference to Oryx's being in the area.

Anybody else seen one?

Chris
