Fantastic!!! Esto, were you driving on your own or were you on a game drive?

Massimo, the S28 is between Lower Sabie and Crocodile Bridge.

Hi, it was a drive that i will never forget.I have been driving that road over and over to see a cheetah.
But never in my wildest dreams did i think i would see all these animals in on trip.we drove from crocbridge
to lowersabie just after 6:00 and by 8:00 we only needed a lion to complete the big 5 ,but the cheetah and
serval was much better than a lion.
Some more pics

Attached a photo of our cheetah sighting on the S28 between the S137 & S107 turnoff to the Nhlanganzwani Dam @ 16:30. This was taken seconds before it took off in an attempt to hunt down an impala. Unfortunately for the cheetah (and us) it did not materialize.

Hi, that are great pictures. Especially the leopard. We were there in march this year and we took many pictures of the cheetah (just 1 this time... :wink: ) in the very same tree as you saw the 2 cheetahs. You can them them on our website www.afrikafotosafari.nl click on Zuid Afrika, then click on the Lion (Kruger Park) and then on Kruger 2012. :thumbs_up:
So they must visit this tree maybe many times.


Ruud

Wow, that was some sighting Esto, that's exactly why we love this road and you certainly got very special rewards. :clap:
I always look at those tree stumps and picture Cheetah on them! 8)

Polargiant also a wonderful sighting! :thumbs_up:

One of the reasons why I favor the S28 Nhlowa road over the tar road is the hide! (Sorry I cannot remember the name?)

With some extreme luck you might see the Cape Clawless Otters that are sometimes seen here :D

There is always something interesting to see on this road! In the days when I had very minimal interest in birds, this verreaux's eagle owl fascinated me and was a memorable sighting :D

I would with no doubt say S28!!

7 different cheetah, 2 lions prides, 3 leopards and a serval found on this road!
Need I say more?

Enjoy!

Just got back from Kruger and wanted to let everyone know our final verdict on this topic :D

H4-2: we had very poor luck

s28: In one morning, we saw elephants, lots of general game, and 2 leopards and a cheetah within 5 minutes of each other!
The s28 is the definite winner!
We will definitely drive this road again in the future! :D
