More than overdue 8)

S28 - You will get all or nothing
H-4-1 - Although high traffic always a great drive
S100 - Just because of there is always something to see
S50 - From Shingwedzi up to Dipeni and back because of the view as long as no elephants are around
S99 (Mahonie Loop) - Always awaited us with a surprise

My top 5 are:

H 4-2 Best spot to enter Kruger is Crocodile bridgte and enjoy the road to Lower Sabie. Usually see good sightings (as if the Park sends out the welcoming committee) :dance: :dance:

Saletjie Road can be fruitful and always beautiful :lol:

H1-2 Always eventful and many stories to share at Tshokwane

H 7 Satara to Orpen Lion and Hyena patrol this area 8)


S 100 Can be magic :clap:

Hope to be there in September!!! Can't wait

well just be looking at what the forumites voted, I would say that the s100, s28 and h1-4 probably rates as you most famous drives as of late.

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.

:hmz: :hmz: Its hard to pick just 1. I like most of the roads.
But I think the H1-4 near Ngotso is 1 of my most fave. :hmz: :hmz:
Had some outstanding sightins on that road.
But its not as scenic as some of the other roads.lol
