Along the S110, beneath Matjulu Hill (627m) is a water hole where white rhino often drink, while kudu, giraffe and wild dogs are sometimes seen at the Matjulu water hole.

One is more likely to see browsers like kudu, giraffe, impala or duiker along the Matjulu Loop than grazers such as zebra, buffalo and wildebeest and the thick vegetation makes game viewing difficult.

There are many leopard lairs in the koppies on the Matjulu Loop although these elusive hunters are not often seen.

There have only been a handful of human fatalities caused by leopards in the Kruger one of which occurred close to Matjulu Water Hole in 1998.
