Trying to decipher my notes! Most memorable sighting on S90 was in August last year when we saw 13 white rhino all together (really a crash!) some distance from the road. We have also, on various trips, seen lion, elephant, cheetah on this road. It is well-worth driving.

Up near Balule? Around Bangu?
I've seen photos on trip reports of two cheetah up there on the s90

Cheetah2111 I think that there should be much more cheetah sightings in that area because of the flat and open areas.

That is IDEAL cheetah habitat.

I know that several people reccommend this road to find cheetahs, but I never saw one and I drove it several times. In my experience you can see many Steenbucks here :wink:

Wow Esto :big_eyes:

That must have been an incredible sighting!! One hears and sees all types of animal interactions but this one sounds really amazing...if you have any more pics it would be great :wink:

I love this road - it looks so promising. Ive seen Ostrich, Buffalo, lone Bull elephants, Steenbok on most occasions on this road and the section from Bangu towards Balule has been rewarding with lion sightings for our family over the years. In 2005 we drove the S89 to the S90 and had one of our more memorable drives in the park with plenty of general game as well as lion, leopard and these 2 male cheetah on the S90 just South of S89 junction - we actually saw many giraffes (about 15) staring into some bushes and we drove around to find them looking at these cheetah. They were curious about the cheetah and kept walking up to inspect them but didn't seem sure as to what they were.

The giraffe surely don't feel threatened by them although I have witnessed the same behavior from giraffe towards lion on the S126.

Being among the first cars out the gate one morning in July this year, about 4km onto the S90 from the H1-4, I came across another car who were watching lions crossing the road. Being the only two cars there we counted 20 lions crossing the road and moving off into the bush.

One of Satara's better roads in my opinion. :thumbs_up:
