This little Pan is situated at the corner of the S114 & S118 juction. Was lucky enough to spot 5 Lions there about a week ago.
Has anyone else had any interesting sightings over there?

I stop fairly regularly there on my drives. Have found hyenas, lions, ellies, rhinos, impalas there. Once a hippo in the waterhole rolling over and over and looking very funny! Also a leopard on the other side of the road. Oh, and wild dogs too.

Sounds like a good place to chill 8)

I have seen Wilddog a bit futher on, just after Gardenia hide. I have found the S119 a little gem, regardless of sightings. I just like the road.

Gunner thanks for those great pictures. :thumbs_up:

I was the sole human to witness a wild dog pack kill an impala there , back in the good days im 1987 - the day the SAA Boeing 747 Helderberg crashed east of Mauritius .
I arrived back at B & Dal 40 minutes late .

We saw leopard in that vicinity during May 2012 and prior to that lion. This year January we did not drive in that area. But it looks like a good place or area where a person might see wild dogs.

I was in this area quite a bit this past December.
Can't recall having seen anything at this junction.
But the S118 and S119 were great for sightings.
