I saw a large herd of about 15 Sable on the H1-1 Napi road between Pretoriuskop and Shitlave Dam turn off on Monday afternoon last week.

We saw a small herd of Sable, with youngster, near Punda Maria in May this year. When they spotted us spotting them they raced across the road and disappeared into the bush - lovely sighting!

Both sable and roan occur in the Makuleke CNP (i.e. the Limpopo and Luvuvhu river valleys), albeit rarely and singly. Probably strays from Zimbabwe (Gonarezhou).
