This is the most popular road in the park and it travels from Skukuza to Lower Sabie on tar. The road is scenic filled with thickets and it runs parallel to the Sabie River. You are almost guaranteed to spot leopard in trees or lions lying on the river bank and sometimes they surprise you by coming out onto the road.

The tar road from Tshokwane to Satara is another favorite of ours, especially on the stretch close to Satara, we have had frequent sightings of cheetah and leopard on this road. All the small dams along the road provide the perfect opportunity to see herbivores drinking water, which in turn brings lions around the dam.


If you are looking for a road which guarantees sightings of cheetah, this road is the best one for that, we have always been successful of cheetah sightings on this road. This road also provides great opportunities to see large buffalo and elephant herds.
