Only because you asked so nicely RosemaryH :P

We left camp early and turned away from the dam. After 300m we stopped at the gravel road and watched some guinea fowl run around the mud puddles from the recent rain. We decided to stick to the tar and even when the turnoff left looked interesting we decided to keep heading east. We saw baboons playing in the riverbed and after a couple of pics we headed off again with the road having changed 90 degrees. Almost 10 minutes later we turned left and headed down a gravel road. A breeding herd of ellies interupted our progress but it's a short drive to the waterhole's turnoff west. 3 km's later we saw some zebra and impalas grazing next to the road. Even with the wet weather we still decided to turn left to the waterhole. Just as we arrived there was a commotion and then we saw why - LIT.

We decided to settle in for a while to watched the spotted cat while my SO poured some steaming hot coffee from the flask.

Sounds a bit like leaving Lower Sabie, turning down the tar road, ignoring the loop and the dam wall and turning to S28 and then along the road to Duke waterhole and then stopping there?????

C'MON RosemaryH!!!

I thought you wanted to get one... but I have to say that EJ was pretty quick with that one!!

:thumbs_up: EJ... exactly what you said... left LS, ignored the loop and the damwal, turned onto the S28 with the final stop at Duke's waterhole where WendyA took this beatiful pic of a leopard in a tree. :clap:

Just a lucky coincidence that it was a route I knew well!
