Great shots Big5spotter :clap: !

I find the S29 a great road for mammals and birds - I always give it a go.

Seen last January on this road.

Around the late 80's early nineties, and before, there were tsessebe herds in the area..I even saw one from the lookout facing North! :shock:

Also, a sable sighting or two.

Both populations have sadly disappeared.

Great info!!!! Fascinating...I hear Eland have been spotted nearby in the last year or so.

Saw the 2 main dominant males on this road last Dec and this Dec they were there again...just missed them this time though.. :thumbs_up:

Drove this road quite a few times this past weekend and not as productive as my past experiences but still a great road. Lotsa ellies around at the moment.
The T-junction with the S122 that area upto Mlondozi n back onto the tar is looking awesome. Nice and green with short grass.

Did get to see an interesting interaction between 3 bbjackals & a hyaena in the road just short of the Mlondozi dam turnoff where the jackals kept on chasing and harassing the hyaena until he ended up running down the road away from the jackals. Got a feeling there was a den the jackals were protecting.
