Which road would you drive if you could only drive one?

Unread postby Weltenman » Wed Jul 07, 2010 8:14 pm

Hi Guys


I don't know if there has been a topic like this one before. Which road would you drive if you could drive only one road in the Kruger. And no, the main road from South to North or North to South doesn't count...

Which road between camps, or what section of a raod would you gladly drive all day, all year?

The kaniedood road- (sorry for the spelling), near Shingwedzi... It's a cracker of a road for me, would just sit in the shade all day, meandering along the river....

Lovely thread Weltenman :thumbs_up:

I think the S39. I love the eco diversity on the road and the range of animals that can be found. It also has the Ratelpan bird hide and the Timbavati picnic spot.
The bird doesn't sing because it has answers, it sings because it has a song.

Agree with Inyati - the road along the Kanniedood Dam. :thumbs_up:

So that kinda limits stuff. Ok, I like the road from Skukza to Letaba. You know the main tar raod that goes passed Tshokwane, Satara and those places. It's a nice long road with diverse scenery and I could drive it all day long.

Conservation is not an option.
It's imperative.

Leave KNP alone. Go build a hotel someplace else. Reserves are for the preservation of wildlife.

H7 from Orpen to Satara. I have seen it all - except serval - along this road, but I must be at on it 10 seconds after gate opening time.

Haven't got my map at work but the road from Pafuri picnic site to Crook's Corner. I can't rember its name.

I don't know the road number but it's the dirt road that leads off the N'wanetsi tar road and passes the end of the S100. Had some fantastic sightings there.
