We don't use cheap cardboard in the south. We use Disney animatronics. Its more realistic! :twisted:

Well, when my trip report is finished, you'll see I have seen them 3 times that week, and last week thursday when I popped into Kruger for a day with Sawubona, we managed to see 3 of them on the s28 again. So if you wanna see them, give Lower-Sabie a try :D

Actually no WTM :P I think you're just jealous, but I'm confident enought to pronounce Lower-Sabie as the Cheetah camp...


my s/o and i can honestly confirm that lower sabie is becoming a cheetah camp and we have pictures to back it up. in and around lower sabie we saw a total of 8 cheetah in 4 days and two of those cheetah were cubs. :dance:

as for the roads. no one really likes this road but the h-10 up to the miondozi picnic spot has been wonderful for us, that is where we have seen most of our cheetah sightings and this year we even saw a serval (in day time) which had just had a run in with a puff adder (mads from the forum has video of it). this road has always had something for us, elephant, lion, cheetah, bateleur and we love it because no one drives this road so usually when we have a sighting it is just us and the animal.
the 28 is always a good show, we also like the h 4-1 and h 4-2 as well.

This remains a very interesting topic to read although the last posting is a little bit in the past. I assume the famous top 5 Kruger roads remained the same. One that I can mention is the Mahonie loop at Punda Maria. On one trip we saw amongst others Elephant, Lion, Buffalo and Wild Dog within an hour on this very beautiful and peaceful loop. I wish I was there now. Those who are - enjoy! :D
