Thanks Radman! Are there any dens on the S114? We got one last year (coming from Skukuza) just past the H5 turn off. Very nice and quiet spot without much traffic. Hope to get lucky again!

We always have great sightings around Skukuza

The one year on Christmas day the Lions were at the Picnic site and was walking on the tar road and turn left on the small gravel road. We were only 3 cars following them with no traffic jam.

Hi Jan
Stunning photos!!!!
If I may ask,when where the wild dogs sightings on the S65 and what time of day approximately?
(we are entering at Malelane gate in 2 weeks time on our way to Satara and will be at Lower Sabie also...have wanted to try the S65 as have seldom done so before and it seems a productive rd!)

Many Thanks,
Terri

has anybody got any info on the 3 Toulon male lions that dominate the area of Skukuza and are around 9 years old, does anybody know what prides they control and any interaction theyve had with other males since theyve been in th Skukuza/Tinga area. I followed them from mid 2009 thru now when they were in Sabi Sands but since they went south the reports and info on them is hard to get. thanks

Most roads are good for leopard near Skukuza!!
But the H4-1 between Skukuza and Lower Sabi has had many leopard sightings recently :thumbs_up:
