We generally head for Skukuza's Day visitor centre and try and get the spot right at the fence next to the river, it somehow seems more isolated and peaceful.
The other "regular" is Mlondozi Dam where the view is spectacular but unfortunately the last couple of times we were there the people were extremely noisy and spoilt the atmospere. People seemed to totally ignore the SILENCE sign.
I think I might just opt to grab a quick takeaway at Skukuza and head for Lake Panic, whcih for me is total bliss and very quiet. Sssh. Dont get me wrong I do enjoy talking to other visitors, but talking being the operative word, not yelling.
But really, every one of them has their own special feeling.

This photo was taken as we left Timbavati picnic spot - that tree is on the left just before you get to the intersection about a km from the picnic spot

Let's see what the forumites think is the best place for a 'bush breakfast'? One of our favorites has to be Nhlanguleni, on the S36, not well known. It's hard to chose between the many options... 8)

Tshokwane
Cause you can buy food, which cant be done at most picnicspots.
And i always love the drive past Nkumbe and know that a great restplace awaits me with chirpy and cheery birds.

Tshokwane is too crowded nowadays.

Parfuri is the most peaceful spot in the Park so has to be number one.

Babalala is great - you are always desparate for the facilities when you get there!

And Nkuhulu with its river views is beautiful.

Babalala is my favourite because I saw cheetah while cooking breakfast one morning... :D 8)

But Pafuri is stunning.... :D and though Tshokwane is great ...it is just way to busy ... :(

Mlondozi gets my vote - every time you think that you have spotted all the game there is to be seen something else arrives. It makes concentrating on cooking very difficult when you have to keep stopping to grab the binos! On the negative side it can be miserable though when it is windy!

We usually end up at either Mlondozi, which has the great views, but, as Penny said can get very windy or we tend to gravitate towards Skukuza's Day visitors picnic area.
Our favourite spot is the one closest to the river, it is a lovely secluded spot and one gets the feeling that you have the area to yourself unless as happened to us this year, a bus load of over excited school children arrived for lunch. :roll:

We also enjoy Nkuhlu, but the last time we were there, it looked like the monkeys were once again becoming a nuisance.

For some reason Muzandzeni, off the S36, is nearly always deserted and if you are looking for peace and quiet, thats the one to head for.
