The amount of water confused me , so much in July ?
KNP is sacred. I am opposed to the modernisation of Kruger and from the depths of my soul long for the Kruger of yesteryear! 1000+km on foot in KNP incl 56 wild trails.200+ nights in the wildernessndloti-indigenous name for serval.

ndloti, the river at the Ratelpan was very full indeed. This picture was also taken at the hide in a western direction to the opposite riverbank and also shows a lot of water:

I am not sure if Piet Grobler dam has an operational sluice, but maybe it was opened a day or so prior to our visit to the hide? :hmz:

I had a look at the rainfall stats , there was unusually high rainfall in May & June in many adjacent areas , Houtboschrand and Kingfisherspruit received more than double the monthly average in May .
