I was under the impression a lot of rain fell in the rainy season. Is it a water scarcity or pump problem? I am coming again in December and hope to spend some time here.

Poor wildies - looks like there's no water for them at Nossob.

Please see Kgalagadi Guru's post here :
Hi there kyknetta,

Thanks for sharing your concerns about the waterhole in front of Nossob. Please note that that Nossob did experience some water problems the last month due to wear and tear on the pipeline. It did happen that due to a water tank which was faulty the water to the waterhole had to be cut off to supply the water to the rest camp before it could have been opened to the waterhole again.

In the south we do experience the same problem with waterholes being 'dry' but the reason for that is that the Eland would come down at night and empty the waterholes and the pumps couldn’t pump water fast enough into the waterhole, for example the wildebeest.

Hope it helps.

Management is looking into the situation and plans are being made as we speak to have new boreholes drilled.

Regards

Just had a look at the live cam and :slap: thought I saw zebras on the other side of the waterhole, couldn't make out if it was zebras, impalas or what, so I checked the still image which had a very clear picture and saw that there are nothing at the waterhole. :hmz: My eyes playing tricks on me. :lol:
