N7 BB? Are you trying to drive people out of the parks?

Literally saraf? :hmz:

I have had a few doggie sightings (cheetah lion & leopard too) on the H7 and surrounds, but the current detour could have affected things.

In the last few visits the S100 has been poor for me.

Lets see: left Satara late (6:30). Day started with honey badger, then lion, 6 cheetah. By then it was 9am... But then I think I have "S100 angels" :whistle: Ohhhhh and did I mention this was before 9am?

"Eye of the Tiger", lovely morning indeed. :clap: I do not believe there is such a thing as a bad road, but some definitely seem better than others; such as the S100. :popcorn:

2 weeks ago, we drove this road for 2 morning drives and one afternoon drive without seeing any Lions...
The day before a pride of 11 Lions with cute cubs were seen close to the road... Right place, right time :hmz:

Came across a Civet though in the early morning! First time we saw one in daylight! :dance:

Also saw a big beautiful bull ellie and a jackal ,completed the loop and there were more lions at the end of H6. What a great place. :clap:

I have had some awesome sightings on the S100, the latest being now in Ocotber. A leopard lying in a tree - awesome sighting.

An awesome morning drive is to do the S90, right onto the S41, right onto the S100. My brother and I saw the Big Five before 8am one morning.

The H6, S41, S100 is also a great loop.

We have been trawling the s100 the last couple of days, morning and afternoon not seeing much a all. In fact we have seen less along there than ever before, not even the usual zebs and buffs. Did have a great sighting of ground hornbill 'singing' in a tree.

No sign of any kitty's for us, would dearly love to see cheetah. :pray:


Anyway compensation came this morning in the form of three male lions on a buffalo close to the main road north of camp, especially when one of them got up and decided to have a nap right in the middle of the tar road :dance: :clap:

This is my favourite loop in KNP
I heard an elephant gave birth in the middle of the road yesterday early morning
Any pics anyone
