I was recently at lataba for 5 nights, a truely beautiful camp specialy if your blomming by the river but we saw all most nothing so we took a fulls days drive down to Olifants and back but still nothing to get exicited about. I was starting to wonder if i'd gone blind or some thing, at least the river roads and views are some consolation and we may just make our next trip for Olifants.
Did anyone else find it difficult to spot anything down there during the end of August? :(

Nick you were certainly not going blind :lol:
It is not abnormal to see very little between Letaba and Olifants. But if you go on the tar you should see crocs and hippos in the Olifants river, and usually common to see Elephant in that region :thumbs_up:
The river road is always beautiful :D

Location: Red sand, why do I keep thinking of red sand?
On the S39 last december:

On the S44 in 2004:

Near the S44 on a nightdrive:

But I agree that the area can be rather dull, even birdwise. It is a fantastic landscape though, and that is part of my enjoyment too.

The s39 is not between Letaba and Olifants :wink:
South of Olifants is great though :thumbs_up: H1-4 and S39 are two of my favorite roads :D
