I have had a request for this poll to assess whether perceptions and preferences have perhaps shifted over the years as to which section you prefer visiting.

That is a very difficult question.

I voted "central" because one can go in any direction there! Somewhere like Satara is literally very central and all the roads from the camp can produce good sightings. There are also several great picnic sites in the area, ideal for a cooked brunch.

I love the north (going in mid-October for 10 days) and enjoy the south, if I can keep out of the crowds. The south is also great for taking family or friends who do not visit very often - more chance of good sightings. The north is very special, fewer vehicles, but also less sightings (though one stands a chance of seeing the more rare species).

I prefer the South.
Mainly for it's ease of reach from Jhb. And also some game rich areas where I have had good sightings

Would have also voted for Central as my 2nd alternative if that was an option. I usually enter and leave via Melalane and then make my way up to Satara or Olifants, and then back down south again
