Bridgeman, do you do mainly night drives and are you affiliated to a camp?

Latest on Phabeni Route

The past few days has been very good; not just by the number of people but the sightings has been nothing but productive. Yes some of the nights were quiet but most of it were so worth it.

Some of the nights we go by 3leopard;some nights 1 or 2. Lions were a bit off line but got few outstanding sighting,few kills, lions sleeping on the road, the pride of 4lioness with 6cups(S1) came to our rescue few times were the night goes quiet' and when we about to give up; they remind us that its not over until the finishing line lol.

On the side of the dogs, there's been few reports from normal guest driving around S1 and S3 Numbi gate. We always missed them by few minutes, we had only two sightings of wild dogs the whole week(less than average).

Let's see what this weak bring for us.

Until then' don't drive over the francolins on the road. 50km/h on tar 40km/h on gravel.

Chaaaaaaaw.

Bridgeman, I remember one of your first posts. It was while you worked at Olifants. It was about listening to the silence. It was a post that stayed with me.

good day my lovely forums.

I know you have been looking forward for new updates on this page, I apologies for not updating regulary. I have moved to biyamiti bush camp now. that is the reoson I am not updating the phabeni sightings any more.

I will advice the guide at phabeni gate now #City to update you about the wild dogs and the leopards as you know that side of phabeni gate-skukuza road (S1) is the home for the dogs and the spoted cat.

until then, keep well and drive 50km/h on tar 40km/h on gravel, dont drive too close to elephants bulls on musth and females with small babies.

regards, much love.

Can anyone advise whether they offer night drives from either Phabeni or Kruger gate, as I only see sunset drives listed on the tariffs page?

we drove in at Phabeni gate today 25/08/2013 11:45am. the weather was on our side, good for cats to walk around. lions twice S1 S4 Junction and a mating pair just before the water-gaad point(S65). apparently someone saw a leopard crossing the road walking towards the Nyamudwa dam few minutes before us, search but could not find it. but we were kept busy by Elis and the other beest.

not bad at all.
