Not exactly sure which road you are talking about but I take that it is the gravel road alongside the river before the dam on the back left of the camp. No map no number.

Had a look at the map - that is the S46 and S44 you are talking about then WTM. On the map the road marked as the Letaba River Road is the S47 and is the road one turns left onto just before crossing the high water bridge if you are driving north. It goes to Mingerhout Dam. Certainly a very scenic drive but I have never see much game wise along it.

Such tranquil pix, DB :D Wonder what it will look like in April 2006??

If there has been a lot of rain before it will be lovely and green and then one does not see that many animals and if it is dry and brown, you'll see more animals so either way you'll win :lol:

April 2004 was the strongest I have ever seen the Letaba flow.

The S 47 is a favourite of mine in the Letaba area.

Apart from the scenery we've seen Leopard, pride of 10+ lions, and 200+ buff.

Hi
When I travelled along this road in July 2006 I saw a male leopard resting under some trees.

By the way, have any of you had a look at the Public Sightings Gallery?
I think on about page ten ( I MIGHT BE WRONG) there is a picture of 5 lions taking down a buffalo, that was sighted on the S47.
