We were also lucky enough to get to see the s100 6 cheetah - sounds like possibly the same sighting as it was around the same time (we also had lions cross the road and descend to the riverbed straight afterwards)
Fantastic to see especially as we have never had good fortune on the s100 up until this trip and never had many good cheetah sightings at all in the park!

Could only manage to get a shot of 4 of them at the same time though!

Only joking,my "love to hate road" as in all my trips it has promised so much but failed to deliver.
I would rather do the tar to Nwanetsi then north past Gudzani.
Forest or County?

In early Feb at Shingwedzi we saw a lone cheetah on the H1-7 about 1km south of Boyela in the middle of the road. We were the only car there the entire afternoon and we sat with her for about 40mins before she moved off into the bush. Very lucky indeed!!

When we got back to Shingwedzi we wanted to mark it on the sightings board but there weren't even cheetah markers on the board to mark it with - possibly eluding to the rarity of the sighting that far up North. :dance:

SusieB, you lucky fish!
That is rather special. Most likely they will have split up by the time I get there next month!
God bless,

Yup, the S100 - S41 - H6 loop is very good for cheetah.
We had 3 seperate sightings on 2 drives this past December.
