We saw 3 male lions kill a buff within 1km from Bobbejaanskrans (video in signature)

A short while ago, my wife and I were sipping coffee early in the morning at Bobbejanskrans, enjoying the view and peacefulness.

We heard another car arrive and a loud ladies voice said - " careful they will bite you "

We turned around and there were 3 hyenas standing a couple of meters away from us. Fortunately they sniffed the air and bolted away.

What could have caused that ?

We got into our car and as we were driving back to the tar road, there was a lioness lying there.

Bobbejanskrans has wonderful memories for us, both good and exciting !

Bobbejaankrans remains one of our favourite get-out points in the Kruger. Although with great caution and always remaining close to the car :). In our personal experience the Orpen to Satara road is the best for predator sightings - for others it may be the S100 – not so sure how it works :hmz: . And Bobbejaankrans is smacked on that “predator” road network :wink: .

Lovely just to sit there, admire the view, and enjoy the tranquility.
A sighting is a bonus

Has anyone recently visited beautiful relaxing Bobbejaankrans to admire the view and had a bonus - a memorable sighting?

Not too recent a sighting but this is taken from the Bobbejaankrans view site in Mar 2014 after some very heavy rain over the previous 2 days.
Just before that it had been a dry riverbed.

Thank you ELsa for posting that stunning view over the Kruger National Park from Bobbejaankrans :gflower: Plenty of water in the river below.
