My favourite spot in my absolute favourite place on earth? - a very difficult choice!! If I have to choose, it will be somewhere in the north. Tshanga lookout is a definite contender - I have very fond memories of me and my father climbing that koppie on numerous occasions. But I think I must agree with Muhammad - the road next to the Kanniedood Dam. How I long to be there right now!!!!

For me it is Mathekenyane.
I have been privileged to spend a few sunsets there and it is a place of unbelievable beauty and atmosphere.
I feel as though I am in a Cathedral and heaven touches earth.
The moment of sunset is a moment of consecration.
This place honours that special moment.

Discovered it during the firs hours of day as a gem to see the bush coming alive. Feast your eyes on Kruger and you can see as far as the Drakensberg . Best place imo to feel and hear the wind.

Thanks for the picure Bert. I have sat on that rock and seen some of the most stunning sunsets of my life. I hope to see another one in just over two weeks time.

Outside of Orpen gate for starters, is a wonderful sight. It means we are about to start a trip.

Tamboti is the best camp for value.

Matambeni hide always has something happening.

The view outside the restaurant at Letaba does it for me.

S100 and H7 are my favourite roads.

The greatest area is north of 26:29' S and south of 22:25' S

However depending on the time of year "best" spots for viewing action may vary.

Now if you just wnt to experience that emotion of being content and spiritually at ease, then being under the big trees next to the Levuvu between Crooks Corner and Pafuri P/site is what does it for me!!!!

Any quiet place with not too many people around

Favorite spot...hmmm.... this is hard to answer -there are so many! For me personally though, any river road is a favorite spot. I drive my family nuts because I insist on being on the side of the river (which means I'm forever switching places with people :lol: )

Some of those river turn-offs along the Sabi River are divine! I could just sit at one of those for hours! The look-out over the Nwanedzi River, east of Satara is good too....Nkumbe also!

Best in KNP for me must be Nhlanguleni picnic spot. Very peaceful, and my children love playing baboon in the trees. I would certainly live there forever

Let's see - one can work this out scientifically!

My favourite pastime in the Park is sitting at a waterhole.

The less traffic the better.

As far north as possible is always good. (not too far, you can't get there often enough.)

A little shade is nice.

First impressions last: at this spot a cheetah came down to drink and was chased away by a herd of zebra!

Answer: Bangu waterhole

Unfortunately, the wet cycle has made this spot rather unproductive over the past few years, but I always stop there for a quiet enbrochette. (WTM)

Isnt Bangu just the best ...Spend my life there when we stay at Balule....BEST Waterhole South of OlifantsRiver. Coming to think of it I cant realy think of a better waterhole North of Bangu either but I will give it some thought.

My favourite places in Kruger are those places that have ancient and beautiful trees. Places like the Appleleaf woodland on the S94 close to Letaba, Letaba itself, Shingwedzi river frontage and the Mphongolo.

However my all time favourite place is Pafuri, with it's Fig tree forests (old picnic spot), Fever Tree forest, Baobabs, mature Mopani woodland and one particular spot - a deep shady cluster of Mahogany, Jackal-berry and Nyala trees which is heaven on earth for me.
