I see Shingwedzi is a good place to see elephants and the Tamboti and Orpen area for honey badgers 8). If you like to have sightings of people Skukuza might be good place :)

I like your list MM!! And quite agree :D

For me though, according to which animal can be seen or heard in the camps:

Pretoriuskop = impala in the camp

Skukuza = bushbabies in the trees

Satara = African Wild Cat

Tamboti = honey badger

Lower Sabi = Hippos

Tzenze = owls

Shingwedzi = Civet and Lions

Letaba = Bushbuck

Malalane = hippos (grazing on the grass a short distance from the fence on the Eastern side)

Berg en Dal = genet

Balule = Hyena

8)

If its what I think it is, one of the very first forum meets. I'm not sure if any of the participants have fully recovered from it, even today. There could still be a report from it, have a search for "Bananarama".

Two of the three times that we have visited Shimuwini we saw snakes – one puffadder during the one visit and a boomslang and another one that I do not know during the other visit. The elephants that we saw en-route to the camp are very big. We saw our first African Wild Cat during the night drive from this quaint little bushveld camp. Bird life in the Letaba River in front of the camp is good.

Shimuwini – Snakes, Elephants, African Wild Cat and Aquatic Birds.
