Good thread!!

Top 5 for us:

S106, Rabelais loop

H7 Orpen to Satara

S89, Ngotso Weir road

S114, Biyamiti Weir to H1-1

H4-1... busy though

Very hard decision though... Very close: Maroela loop and S130 loop near Croc Bridge!

Yep, Binky. You'd better believe it. There are some aweful roads.

They are the ones that take you to the exit gates.

By far the worst roads in Paradise.

My top 5 roads are;
1. S100. The months I go to Kruger this road is relatively quiet.
i.e. Late November and late January. Always some interesting sighting.
2. S41. A very productive road for general game and predators.
3. S90. In summer this is a very quiet stretch for other vehicles but I have had many memorable sightings of elephant,lion, cheetah, bird flocks, and even white rhino .
4. H10. Muntshe hill and Nkumbe lookout. Breathtaking views.
5. S63. Stunning vegetation / trees along Levuvhu river.
I cannot wait for my next trip. :D

PJW, you need a peronal guide, chef or some body to help you with this Kruger Trip of yours, you let me know and I will help you out.

KNP trips are awesome experiences that sometimes need some very serious help.

You sure you can manage this all by your lonesome?

Of course PJW is not referring to me here.

I was very quiet about my visit.

(I did tell you that your turn would come. For once I am not :mrgreen: as I am still content that I had a really good trip.)

I wish you safe travells and hours of pleasure for yours.
