sammuri, it is definitely worth a visit as the area around or close to the hide will definately not disappoint. In June, the water levels might be extremely low to muddy, but buffalos love this. :dance:

I had some amazing sightings there, but the birdies come very close and just sit and enjoy a few minutes there and you might just get a welcome surprise by some interesting visitors. :thumbs_up:

I agree. I have had several amazing sightings at this hide. Like everywhere else in the park, it's all about timing.

I never miss stopping there. Often including a few visits during my stay, trying to go at different times of the day.
KRUGER, my happy place!

If anyone ever sees anything at this hide, please post a pic.

Hi Bush Baptist

That is one of our favorite hides and roads. We have seen lion several times on that road and leopard.

At the hide we have been blocked inside by a group of elephants and last year we saw 2 rhinos drinking at the water hole. It was a lovely sighting.

Definitely a place we will visit end of the month when we are there again.
