Hi Robbie,

We did the road late September and it was in good condition. Didn't see much, but it was a miserable day.
You are almost guaranteed jackals on this road. Have never done the road without seeing at least one. In prior years we have had good lion sightings and apparently Cheetah is seen there every now and then, although I haven't came across one yet.

The best part of the road is that you will be on your own, we try and do this road at least once every year and our average car sightings on this road is 1 per trip.

Hi RobbieB83. I drove this road (S37) about 2 weeks back (one of my favourite roads as it is so remote) and the condition was hundreds. Some of the vegetation was a little overgrown, as in onto the road, however, no real issue.

From a sightings point of view it was fantastic. Saw a lot of Giraffe, Elephant, Kudu, Rhino etc.
No predators unfortunately but still definitely worth the drive. The bird life was also fantastic.

I would give it a go if I were you!

This is one of my favourite roads from now on. Such a great bush feel.

Followed Wild dog on a hunt for 3km. Great condition and generally the most underrated road in the park.

Couldn't agree more. It really gives one the feeling of being out in the middle of nowhere. One of my top 5 roads, without a doubt.
