I was thinking about this in a previous thread, dont know whether someone already discussed this, but the mods wil sort me out :lol:

On this forum people discuss varios roads on a daily basis...

If for instance a magazine did a article on Kruger and they were busy interviewing you, what would you say to them is the Top 5 famous kruger drives?

Remember, think about wildlife,scenic, good condition,popularity

In no particular order mine would be:

S25
S100
H1-4
H4-1
S44 (Letaba-Olifants)

DD. you can get this into the Polls thread and get the mods to attach one of those counter distings to it.

Then we can get a vote count.

Dotdan, a gravel road adjacent to the H1-1 basically leading from transport dam to the S1 close to Skukuza.

So many roads and I can only choose 5 :shock: .

In no particular order of preferrence:

S100
S41 (Saw Cheetah once on this road)
S65
S21 (only travelled it twice but I saw Rhino and Leopard on it the last time.)
S30 Salitjie Road.

Of all the roads outside of KNP, I love the N12 - N4 east. Wonder why?
