I would like to add the herd of Sable in the Orpen-Talamati area.
I have seen Sable as far East as the S36 and closer to Talamati.
At the time I did not take note of the numbers unfortunately.

During our recent trip in March 2013, we came across a herd of 9 Sables on the H1-2.

Hi everyone! We are going to Kruger and our first night will be in Pretoriuskop. Which routes around Pretoriuskop are the best for Sable Antelope?

I have seen them on the Fayi Loop, the tar road towards Numbi Gate, and the Voortrekker Road towards Ship Mountain. In other words, just drive around. :twisted: Good luck Hamman. :thumbs_up:
