Day 17 Skukuza 27 April

Colony of Banded Mongoose in Camp

Left Badplaas at 08h00, travelled via Barberton, Kaapmuiden, then turned off onto the N4 towards Malelane Gate. A distance of 146Km.

When we got to the gate there was a long delay due to Crocodile Bridge being closed, people arriving and people leaving after the long weekend.

Arrived at Skukuza, 7 days earlier than planned, at midday and setup camp for a 15 day stay.

Co-ordinates of camp site

Elev. 272m (from 2000m at Golden Gate)


  1. Hi Guys. Well done - talk about steaming ahead! Please settle my curiosity - do those co-ordinates indicate your EXACT position at the camp site or are they just the co-ordinates of the camp site in general ? I hope your satellite dish is set up for good reception ? You don't want to miss the big Stormers game on Friday night - even if there is a pride of lions sitting on your canvas that evening ! Kerry

  2. Wishing you well on your adventure.
    May your sightings be awesome, and your happiness overflowing.
    A fellow KNP lover.
