This road appears quite dry even in December! So I would ignore it in dry months ... General sightings were not that frequent. But we had all the sightings to ourselves on the drive!
And the open plains animals are around in the grasslands around the s90 toward Balule :D

And lions :wink:

We enjoy driving this road for the scenery although we have never seen Cheetahs or lions on this road – so far. We usually/always see Steenbokkies on this road – different sightings in one trip :thumbs_up: .

Has anybody driven this road recently?

I was thinking of taking the S90 via the S100 and S41 to Balule from Satara rather than the H1-4.

Although I've yet to see a gobsmacking sighting on this road, I always love the scenery, the quiet, and indeed the expectation that, just like Lotto, we'll hit the big one some day soon. :pray:

We saw our only Sable in 6 visits along this road about 10 years ago. An underrated favorite of ours.

Is this a good road to drive in the winter or should one rather take the main tar road?

Hi Div,

It depends on what you are looking for. I did it twice in July, against the advice of people. Sure, Bangu waterhole is dry, and I only saw a huge herd of buffalo plus the usual kudu, waterbuck, wildbeest, zebra and impala. Grass was pristine, unburnt, and I saw NO vehicles on the whole trip!
The tar road had more animals, many more cars, and sections were burnt...
Enjoy and God bless,

Friedrich von Horsten
