Morning All.

Just to let you know that all three main camps-Mata-Mata, Nossob and Twee River now have walking trails within the camp. Guests can now walk the trails (at own risk) within the confines of the fence.

The walking trails will be in full operation by Mid November, the Nossob trail is just being upgraded and Mata-Mata & Twee Rivieren has new trails. The Nossob trail will take about 45min to complete, The Mata-Mata trail about 30 min and the Twee Rivieren Trail about 1,5 Hours.

There will be a pamphlet available for the trail explaining some trees, grass and other phenomenon.

So I hope you will make use of the trails while in the camps when you just would like to go for a stroll in the camps.


Happy walking

KG

Wow Jannie - another GREAT KTP feature - you are certainly working hard there to make our beloved park even better and even more enjoyable ( if that's at all possible) - thank you for everything you are doing - for all your great ideas and for getting them DONE :clap: :clap:

Hi J

Thanks for the info - I did the previous walk within Nossob and I got many photo opportunites (small birds). I did enjoy the walk along the fence and following the bird life within the camp.

Highly recommended for those bird watcher and photographers.

I also did the Nossob walk previously, finding nests and some of the shy birds.
