Elsa, I have read all the entries regarding sightings for Talamati camp, which now has left me in doubt as to whether I should book at Talamati camp or Sukuza. I am intending to be in the Kruger around the 18 March this year; your advice will be very helpful (I do a lot of photograph)


i got to meet Gavin at Talamati and that was special.

good luck with the sightings Gav.

hello mites

the game drives at talamati have been quite impressive. moreover guests had very great sightings on their private vehicles, of cheetah(several times), leopard, you name it.

im still struggling to get usable material due to dense bushes.

Hopefully the bush will start thinning out a bit soon!
but sounds like there have been some wonderful sightings there in any case.

the little dry condition is bringing with it amazing sightings yet again.

last night on sunset drive we saw two male lions that were following a herd of buffalo on a hunting attempt. it's quite logical because this time around there is a lot of calves.

Thanks for the updates Ras.
Would this be the Patrick who was based at Lower Sabie in 2010?
