The area surrounding Ratel Pan is great for game viewing. Regular sightings are made of Elephant, Lion, Giraffe, Waterbuck and lots more.

Ratel Pan, is located on the S39 gravel road near Timbavati Picnic Site. By the way, Ratel is the Afrikaans name for Honey Badger, but it doesn't mean that you are likely to see one here!
