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!

@ Panekoek and kite it's a pleasure,
I did not know that there was so many eland and gemsbok in the western section and it look like the zebra's are doing well also, there's between 20 and 30 new one's born.
