I haven't traversed the length and breadth of Kruger like most of you but N'semani and Mlondozi Picnic spot are the ones I could sit at for half a day.

I can sit at the majituli water hole just off the loop as I can remember sitting there with my parents when I was a little kid, back in the 90's there used to be a dead tree stump right behind where people used to park and with out fail I would see some1 reverse into it atleast once on each trip lol

Mlondozi Picnic Spot
Transport Dam
Lake Panic Hide

Anywhere where it is quiet. (as far as other vehicles is concerned)
My favourite places are Vutomi Dam, Bangu Waterhole, Gudzani waterhole, various river views on the Timbavati Road as well as Leeubron Waterhole and The Shimangwaneni dam on the S36.
In the north the Tshange Lookout is a firm favourite as well as the Red Rocks Lookout.
In the south Dukes Waterhole is my favourite coffee stop.

I could sit all day at Lake Panic Hide. Always great bird life, love the never ending hippo show and have seen wonderful activity there ... my favourite a herd of elephants coming down to the edge to drink, splash and then walk across in single file to the other side. Useless at posting pics but would be happy to email them to you. Will pm you

Tshanga by far, it is quiet and you can sit without anyone else pitching up.
There is a lot to see if you sit long enough. There is no toilet paper either, as it is not visited by hordes of people .
