best landscape is Mlondozi for me

best picnic spot for me is Nkhulu
always had good food and service
always some bird in the riverbed
and saw a small phyton in the reeds some years ago
just like the atmosphere of the place

Timbavati. If you look closely you'll see some lions in the river bed.

It was amazing how many people came to the picnic site, used the ablutions then drove off without seeing them, all because they didn't want to ask the attendant. They missed a wonderful sighting.

The attendant also puts out a bird bath near the kitchen that attracts a lot of birds. Sorry I haven't got pictures of the other sites, my camera gear is not really set up for landscapes.

Can one get a kudu roll at N'wanetsi? We fancy a different lunch tomorrow halfway through our east of Satara loop!

I think its only Tshokwane, Afsaal and Nkuhlu that serve food, sorry.

Definitely Makhadzi :D :D , I get such a good feel, it is organized, clean and sometimes we have been the only visitors, just to cook, eat and relax, no better way to spend a morning. Secondly will have to be Pretoriuskop Day Visitors picnic site, very well run, clean and also very relaxing. In Dec 2012 we stopped for breakfast on 3 occasions, we were the only ones there for close to 2 hours, nice table and chairs and the bush around is lush and we also got a very good feel :D :D

My top 3:

1. Pafuri every day. The place is magical. Frank once showed us a Pel's Fishing Owl there. But the biggest attraction is the trees. Those "Hardekool" trees...
2. Makhadzi. The road from Letaba is not that appealing, but the sense of tranquility...
3. Babalala - Open plains with Mopanis - my favourite.

Mlondozi is beautifully situated but it is ALWAYS busy. The last two times we had to turn around as there was no space for us.

I dunno maybe someone can jog my memory? Far up North on the Limpopo there used to be a very big tree, one of the ficus species. Here I think in its shade is my favorite spot.
