This is a place that re-ignited my love for nature. The gate is more to keep MM in than the animals out :wink:

There is a magical spot on the S145 near Talamati ...
You need to detour off of the main road towards the river.
The spot by the river forms a little grove surrounded by Mighty Trees. As you sit in the shade you are alone and get to watch all the antics of the monkeys and the colourful birds :D I dream of seeing a leopard lying on one of those low branches one day :D

Cheetah :D I know the place. It is a dead ringer if you are looking for African Green Pigeon. I agree, it is very, very special, indeed. 8)

Anywhere in Kruger will do for me. The feeling of peace, serenity and sheer joy that I experiance on arrival at Kruger is priceless .........

The butterfly in the stomach feeling when you approach a gate is at its best for me at Phabeni. Then there is something magical about Leeupan, I have never seen a lion there and sometimes nothing but the dry tree on the northern side - I just love the spot it feels as if I am on the moon or somewhere between the stars, I think heavenly is the word.
My other favorite spots are of course Crooks corner and Mahlangeni - and the big Baobab in the Makuleke area, and the view over Lanner Gorge and then and then .........
One of the places I used to Iove spending time at was the "Small Heroes Acre" - the dog cemetery in Skukuza unfortunately it is no longer there :(

I agree - all of Kruger is Magic

But my fave spot is Olifants camp. Sitting near the fence with a view of the river - heaven.

Apart from Pafuri, one of the benches overlooking the Letaba River in Letaba Camp … I think it must be amazing to see the river flowing strongly after good rains and then to sit on one of those benches and watch as the water flows and swirls past the camp.

Also love the Pafuri region but my favourite spot must be Lake Panic. We spend hours at a time at LP. The atmosphere, different birds and the Hippos' always ensure some action.In Winter with the temperature near zero it is the best place to see Africa awake to another day....

Few memory sighting and shots.....

I think visitors to Kruger later on in the year will have a different view from the perimeter benches in the camps overlooking the Letaba and Shingwedzi Rivers (if those are their favourite spots) as the views might be minus a few of those majestic trees that were part of the landscape for many years.
