Saw my first bunch of wild dog in Kruger on the little road to Bobbejaankrans, just after the turn off.

Meandering Mouse that photo will make me quit my job to go and sit on that bench permanently!! :mrgreen: Love the spot there as well, Saw a honey badger down in the river bed in June at about 11:00 in the morning! Did not expect that one at all :D Had some nice bird sightings as well with a little Cape Batis right next to me as well as a Bennett's woodpecker in the tree below.

A short while ago, my wife and I were sipping coffee early in the morning at Bobbejanskrans, enjoying the view and peacefulness.

We heard another car arrive and a loud ladies voice said - " careful they will bite you "

We turned around and there were 3 hyenas standing a couple of meters away from us. Fortunately they sniffed the air and bolted away.

What could have caused that ?

We got into our car and as we were driving back to the tar road, there was a lioness lying there.

Bobbejanskrans has wonderful memories for us, both good and exciting !

Bobbejaankrans remains one of our favourite get-out points in the Kruger. Although with great caution and always remaining close to the car :). In our personal experience the Orpen to Satara road is the best for predator sightings - for others it may be the S100 – not so sure how it works :hmz: . And Bobbejaankrans is smacked on that “predator” road network :wink: .

In early March we watched in amazement how the Timbavati roared in full flood below us from there.

Lovely just to sit there, admire the view, and enjoy the tranquility.
A sighting is a bonus
