All these various pix/topics you're posting are very inspiring, JB! They are making me really want to visit this park. It looks like it has lots to offer!! Thanks for the obvious effort you've made to provide such an excellent visual overview of this park. The differences from year to year are very interesting. You're lucky to have been able to visit this park so relatively frequently! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

The park is really beautiful. What I find irresistible is the rock formations

Hi Wildjohn
Must have had some rain by now? I'm in Polokwane and we have had much more than expected (about 120 mm in the last 3 weeks or so.

This pic taken in February 2004, close to the hill.

All these gorgeous pics still don't do justice to a stunning park. I reckon if you don't fall in love with it on your first visit (as I did) then you can't have a heart! The rock formations, the baobabs, the gorgeous Leokwe camp and pool, the friendly smiling people, they're all part of a very special package.

We are going to me at here next week. It will be our first visit to this park and can't wait. Hopefully we will be able to post some nice photo's. Will be doing the heritage walk on Friday morning.

I'm sure you'll find the heritage walk fascinating, wendyp. The guides are really well informed and they make it fun, too. We had the smiling, friendly Moses Baloyi when we visited and he truly made it a morning to remember. If he tells you a big oval hole in the ground used to be a jacuzzi, don't believe him!
