I'm not sure how often leopards are seen on the S100 but my best luck with leopards on this road has been a total of 5.

One was a mother with 2 cubs a few years back and in May 2010 we had seen 2 leopards together near a watering hole staking out impala that weren't too far off. Nothing did happen though..

Another of the Big 5 which I haven't seen all that often on this road has been rhino.
As for lion well all I can say is that it has delivered tons of sightings for me. From prides numbering close to 20 to lone males just hanging out more often than not the S100 has delivered.
I think in 2009 they were so common during my visit that I had began to view them like impala & give them the cursory glance and continue on my merry way.

Overall it IS a Big 5 road and long may it continue.

Irrespective of the sightings I see or not I find it to be a beautiful road to drive on.
Don't know when I'll be there again but can't wait !!!

Just wondering if the OLD Rat Pack (you know the ou manne) and the REALLY OLD manne (the Duke guys - the oupas) could handle a challenge in the KNP from the young and up coming musketeers :whistle:


Well I'll be damned.. someone remembers us? :twisted:

The oupas en old manne will always be ready.. even when we are 90 we will still walk down the S100 with our walkers "... eeeehhhh ehhhhhh.... Just bring it"

Seriously.. if you want to throw down a challenge.. you better make it interesting. :twisted:

You do know we will bury any young and upcoming musketeer? :wink:

What they are still learning we have forgotten already LMAO! :lol:

If there is one person who will see lions anywhere BUT the s100, its myself :whistle:

C21111111 - these old dagga boys and bulls of the forums went off on two challenges. One lot to look for Duke ... ask them if they found him :twisted: And the other lot, the Rat Pack to find some game on the S100. Which they are still looking for ... :whistle:

Methinks it is time some of the young bucks helped W@H find sable :whistle:

We were at Satara from 5-9 October and boy did the S100 produce!-beautiful leopard male marking territory and the the about 30 lions taking the wildebeest-yes Rookie 2009 we we got there a few minutes after the kill-what a sight.
Tried to look for other YR's but saw none all the time at Satara.

Hallo There!!
When I was at Shingwedzi in December 2010 everybody that I met said if you want to see lions,leopard and cheetah go to Satara and drive the S100.
Well in the last 3 times I drove there I only saw one old male lion and some zebra, waterbuck and buffaloes!

Hi rufie,

Sorry to hear about your experience on the S100 :(
The S100 does get many big cat sightings. This is because it is such a busy road the cats will get spotted more often. It's all about being at the right place at the right time, as on any road. If you drive the S100 early morning late afternoons, serveral times, there is a big chance you wil see a cat. But after all, the KNP is not a zoo.

Hope you'l have better luck next time :thumbs_up:

Regards Tim

Last 3 times along the S100 have been lionless.

One drive, others said we just missed 3 prides. Maybe my dad's car smelt like hunterpee.


:funny:

We used to boast that we have always seen cats on the S100; until one day it didn't happen. However, most times we drive that route we see something special! :clap:
