Yes, it is printed in a book "Where to watch game in the Kruger National Park" by Nigel Dennis. Sorry I should have quoted that after you got the correct answer. I found the maps good in this book and thats where I found the "secret" water hole off the S39.

There are some wonderful drive in & reverse out lookouts on S39 !
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.

Rosemary, shall we still wait for Meerkitty to further this quiz, or should it be opened up for others to post a Q?

You are following yesterday's path winding through bush and hills and you remember a time when to going was slow and many stories were told. Finally you reach it's rest place and you see the wise men. The hands stands still, all that's left is the knowledge and wisdom to be found.

Which camp/place will you be visiting?

I must admit I had to stop and think a bit on that one. Very interesting Markus. Maybe you can have another turn. I must say my thinking cap is not working tonight!
