In my experience the S100 is a great route for Big Cat hunting. December 2011 we saw Cheetah, Lion and Leopard all in one drive. BUT, I think the best drive is to complete the entire loop i.e. start with the S100 turn right onto the S41 and then right on the H6 back towards Satara.

We had brilliant Cheetah sightings on the S41 and the H6 had brilliant Lion sightings as well as a Cheetah lying in the centre of the road about 5 km from the Nwanetsi picnic site. People don't drive the H6, they rather return on the S100 again.

Early Mornings are hectic on the S100 as everybody staying at Satara races there in the morning. The irony is that the one morning we went past the S100 and rather took the H6, and there they were...... Lions in the road with only two other cars!


It's the luck of the draw I suppose! :wall:

The S100 is normally very good for cats, but occasionally they like to hide!!!! :thumbs_up:

Hope you see plenty from your Olifants verandah!!!!! :dance: :dance:

Enjoy. :thumbs_up:

Hi Wachinda

I know you have said you like a to avoid the tar roads, but the H6 in the morning is a great alternative to the s100(which gets A LOT of traffic). In April I had a young male leopard walking down the road all to myself :thumbs_up:

Good luck for your sightings

Will add both road. My SO picked up on the S100 sucks :wall: chant from a few years back so will welcome an alternative to avoid the traffic. Hope both roads deliver

Even if they don't deliver cats, they will deliver what they want you to see that day. :thumbs_up:

I would love to see wild dogs again as only even seen once . Shared some brilliant alone time with a pride of lions on the 4x4 route with the s100 ( and its traffic ) in the distance

We've always been very lucky on the S100, seen lion almost every time. Having said that we probably won't ever see them again :doh: :doh:

Then head in the opposite direction from the S100, down the N7.

N7 BB? Are you trying to drive people out of the parks?

Literally saraf? :hmz:

I have had a few doggie sightings (cheetah lion & leopard too) on the H7 and surrounds, but the current detour could have affected things.

In the last few visits the S100 has been poor for me.
