Breden, we are still here and I have booked the Mphongolo Backpacktrail for the third time! It is just too addictive! Going 22 - 25 July this year, so first time in winter!

Few questions:
1. I noticed it being very dry; do you think there will be still surface water aroun?d (by estimate, you know the area quite well)
2. How cold does it normally get during July on the Mphongolo trail at night my estimate is 0-5 degrees, it this correct?
3. Are all the area's accessible to walk? (have done Phona Hill area, Zare Windmill and Boomplaas/Phungwane river area. The latter I found extremely beautiful!

We are a big group (8 persons) and I have managed to get a lot of 'bakpack virgins' with, and we all can't wait! Extremely excited :D

Any nice stories of recent trails? Especially curious to stories about the sounds at night etc...
Tambotie 20 July, Shipandane Birdhide 21 July, Mphongolo Backpack Trail 22 -25 July, Tzendze 26 July, and Greater Limpopo National Park 27 -29 July :D
