Know the Waterhole.........

Unread postby Kgalagadi Guru » Mon Nov 14, 2011 9:21 am

There are so many KTP fanatics out there which knows the park quite well, this is now the opportunity to see if you can ID certain waterholes.

I will post a picture of a certain waterhole and after two days from posting I will post the name of the waterhole. It would help the new guests to the park to learn the waterholes and know what it looks like when we say what sighting were at which waterhole.

Good luck

The following picture has nothing to do with the waterhole quiz but just for the fun of it, it shows that when KTP doesn’t have enough people to help pulling the pumps then we just ask the lions (Photographer unknown).

Hi SG

Luckily I remembered my photo and it was at Houmoed in March 2011
