Would really like to see Suni and Red Duiker up north, otherwise
Pangolin and Grey Rhebok would be special. :D

Mmm, how about a lion,leopard, cheetah or wild dog sighting without a traffic jam? :evil: A very scarce sight indeed :hmz:

We had lion and leopard sightings without any traffic..but then again that was in the North. Our cheetah sighing had some cars but everyone was well behaved.

I've seen Red duiker at Leeupan before 5 years ago

An all to rare sight in the Kruger is rayb and Mrs rayb. I only wish it was a more familiar sight for you all :(

The first time I took my family to the Kruger heading up the N4, I said I wonder what the first animal sighting will be, expecting it to be a vervet monkey or baboon. What did we see in a field? A herd of camels!
