At the risk of getting my own "Difference of ......" thread I would just like to throw in a quick comment about noise at Nossob.
The levels went up significantly it seems when they started opening up 4x4 trails and camps etc... Somehow when you go there on your own or with your SO you are very aware of your own noise as you sit queitly sipping Amurula, but when you are travelling in a group of 8 or more adults, the whole attitude changes and suddenly there is a big circle around a small fire with people talking loudly so that everyone in the group can hear. It's somehow harder to be considerate when in a large group. When I'm with a gathering I always try to bear that in mind.

Nossob is still my favourite camp though and if you absolutely HAVE to be there in school holidays then try to give the kids a break. Far better they are there than hanging out at the Mall.

Does anyone know where in Nossob the pool is? I hope it's far away preferably on the northen side of the camp.

Agree.........in my case visit out of school holidays

November was magic, the only noise in Nossob was the barking Gecko's and the music of the night, Lion, Jackel and Hyaena

But then again there's just more to see in school holidays

I once took the family to Kgalagadi, including 3 young kids and a bucketfull of Lego to keep the older 2 amused. Little did I know the youngest boy ( 3 ) decided in his wisdom, to throw a piece of lego out of the window every now and then, like some kind of Hansel And Gretal trail. A car with a young couple noticed a piece on the road and picked it up then saw another and another. For 2 days when sightings were quiet they would look for Lego until they had built there own fairly substantial castle. Eventually they found us and gave it to us and we all had a good laugh.

Great news for January. In those school holidays we picked our campsite out of all the empty ones.

I will certainly ask loud children to tone down a bit if parents do not care, as seems to be the norm these days.

Or maybe I will dive in and splash out all the water!

Hey maybe we shuld remember that those children playing in that pool and maybe making a bit of noise is the future generation that will be keeping our Parks going cos they will grow to love them if their parents are taking them their so young. Tolerance is the important thing and I would rather listen to a happy child in the day than some drunken party going on to early hours in the morning and distubing my sleep so I can't get up nice and early for my first drive. Jus a thought and you can use it or loose it.

Careful!!! the dronkies will attack you for this
I cannot imagine many parents letting their children loose in the pool at night with scorpions on the prowl. I think it is a storm in a paddling pool.

Gee, that is amazing!
When can it be considered an official flowing? if it reeachesTR?
It wouldbe unbelievable as it usually only flows once acentury, but now itcould flow twice in 5 years
