Wow, BushFairy, you had an excellent time! Herewith some pics of the sightings we enjoyed during our 2 day stay end June'11.

The caracal we spotted on the road, just outside the camp on the way to the gate

And the cheetah on the Link road just off Rooiplaat...

Why is that the best sightings one always encounter just before gate closes, hence had to rush back to camp...??? We had a similar experience with lions in Addo and leopard in Kruger.

Now that a person is back home, one experiences how much MZNP has grown on you - wanting to look for an opportunity to go back there.

Kruger: 10 - 18 Dec'11

I am now so excited. We are visiting MZNP from 24 September for 3 nights. We are going camping in a tent. All this beautiful pictures makes me so jealous. Hope we are so lucky as you all. Are we going to freeze?? I know the mornings are very cold. Hope that it would not rain in three nights we are there. It is our first time visit. I hope not the last one. Thanks for all the info you outjies put on the forum. Jislaaik, I still must wait a month to see all of this.

Hi we went to MZP last month and were fortunate enough to come across this
wonderful cheetach who had just made a kill. We sat watching for a good
couple of hours, until he moved into thicker bush.

Enjoy.

Are there any more recent updates on the animal numbers in the park? Any new cheetah cubs, rhino calves, brown hyena news? We are planning a trip for later this year and I would like to revive this topic!
