I told you it was a good sighting
Bush Baptist that was a brilliant sighting and I thought we did well.
Wow, Welshboy!!! Superb and thanks so much for sharing. Serval have such a beautiful coat pattern!!!!
(I have only seen a very distant serval on a night drive from satara)
Serval are HIGH on my wishlist for coming december trip. I gather from combing through the forums that area between LS and Tshokwane is the best chance of seeing serval. As there are quite a number to roads in this area, what route N of LS would forumites recommend to increase one's chances??? Same route as welshboy S29 then S128? (I realise it always comes down to right place right time)
And early morning preferable to late afternoon?
Thanks in advance!
Terri-Lee I followed the forum pages for a couple of weeks to what people where seeing and where they were seeing the animals. We had good days, the serval day being excellent, and bad days CB to Berg en Dal with one herd of elephants. It is purely luck if we had not of taken a trip to Mlondozi picnic point we may have arrived at the section of road before the serval appeared. On our last morning before returning to the UK we were going to simply drive up to Afsaal then head back out to the airport, but my wife suggested taking the S121 and S114 around back to camp for lunch instead. We ended up seeing Ellies, Buffalo, White rhino and a leopard so it made for a good morning before the long flight home.
