Hello, I hope I am not duplicating a topic. Can anyone give me up to date data of the distribution of Predators in Kruger. The last data I can find is that of Paul Funston in 2006. I am curious to know the differences between the north and south. Thanks

Allsort based on my Kruger visits I know that the predator density in Southern and Central Kruger is higher than in the North and Far Northern Kruger (for me it means from Olifants Kamp up further north) .

Perhaps someone who has the knowledge or has access to more scientific data/information will be able to provide you with up to date numbers and distribution patterns.

I would imagine that predator distribution is directly linked to prey distribution.
And as general game is more plentyful in the central and southern areas - predators should be too

Hi Allsort,

Without any scientific backing, you are going to see most lions around LS, CB, Skukuza and Satara.
Wild dog seen more often in B&D, PKop, Skukuza and CB.
Cheetah LS and CB (S28) and H10 to Mlondozi dam. Lots around Satara. I regularly see them between PKop and Phabeni Gate, and PKop and Transport Dam.
Leopards everywhere.

Enjoy and let us know what you found!

God bless,

Friedrich von Hörsten
