Thanks for this. I've been following your reports and love the photos you have added.
I have only been to your park once and that was about 15 years ago! I want to get backbut its a long way from Durban.
Could you give an idea of where the game census areas are on a map?
By the way, very neat waterhole.
Many thanks, Kite

Those are definitely on my hit list but its difficult for so to get 2 weeks or more off from work so watching forums for trip planning for a long visit ( maybe a month ) in a year or 2!
