I understand what you are saying SM \O I have been visiting KNP 3 times a year now for many years, but now often find myself driving past a lion for example, just because there are too many people, besides it's just a lion which we have seen hundreds of times 0:

I'm trying to find a balance between sightings and peace now \O

These discussions are great, and revealing...our own "study", if you will? Maybe we should send it on to somebody? ^Q^

Best game viewing is probably Lower Sabie or Satara - but the best run camp in the KNP is by far Crocodile Bridge - clean well maintained and very friendly / helpful staff :-) :-)
