All the roads are magnificent, but for me the H14 is beautifull, the S52 along the river is also amazing, but my favourite has to be the roads around Balule, S89, S90, S91 and S92. I love the Olifants river!!! :dance:

My favorite has always been the S36, but my best road by far has been the Old road from Shingwedzi past Kanniedooddam to Mopani

Thw S something, The K something. All roads are good but I like the Kanniedood dam road, Mahonie loop, also some others but, you all just look the maps, feel the road. :wink:

Maybe we should start a thread where the numbers are banned. :twisted:

That's my feeling too - ANY road, as long as it's in Kruger :lol:

We avoid the roads that are badly corrugated though - feel that any wildlife along those roads will bolt/fly as they hear your car approaching from km's away. :evil: (Besides the damage to one's kidneys.... :wink:)

S52 Shingwedzi loop via Tshange & S56 Mphonglolo loop are my favourites .
KNP is sacred. I am opposed to the modernisation of Kruger and from the depths of my soul long for the Kruger of yesteryear! 1000+km on foot in KNP incl 56 wild trails.200+ nights in the wildernessndloti-indigenous name for serval.

Definitely the S39 Timbavati Loop and more South the S30 Salitje Road and the S28 near Lower Sabie :hmz:
Have you seen KNP from the SKY yet??

Southern Park, I think the H10, Lower Sabie to Tshokwane. I would have said the Lower Sabie road, were it not for the traffic.

Central Park: the Timbavati route, the S39. Lovely road with many eco zones.

North the Luvuvhu River drives gets a :thumbs_up: The road is so beautiful that animals become secondary.

I have to agree with ndloti S52 and S56 are by far my favorite roads in the park :thumbs_up:

Have always been lucky on Doitspan Road (Phabeni gate road).
Used to be Skukuza to Lower Sabie Road but has become too overgrown and haven't been too lucky there lately.
