Nossob camp's gate must be kept closed all the time to keep the jackals out of the camp. No problem -- when you get there, if there is no-one at the gate, just get out and open it -- making sure to close it behind you.

Hi Everyone,

Holiday time is getting closer , so I also keep an eye on the Nossob webcam.
However, after a few weeks of doing that, the count comes up to wildebeest, birdies, wildebeest, birdies.
Or did I miss something(s)?

Irene

Hi Irene,

just have a look at the webcam highlights from the past months. There you find plenty of lions, cheetah, brown hyena and many more.

Just to mention a few.

And a bird is not just a bird

I am no KTP expert having only just come back from our first trip - Dec/Jan but we stayed two nights at Nossob and it was well worth it. Had good sightings at both Kwang and Marie se Gat. Just my 5c.

IMHO Nossob is well worth a whole week to stay. You can make game drives drive to the north and to the south.

There are a lot of waterholes to visit.

If you want you can make a day trip up to Unions End in the far north.

Not to mention the hide, Nossob offers drives etc.

Maybe we should spread that rumour - then we can have all the lion and cheetah sightings around Nossob to ourselves

Seriously though, like any game park it's all about luck. We are going to be in Nossob for 5 nights in May. I'm sure that answers your question.
Enjoy

Been to Nossob 5 times. 4 times great, 1 time average, but the raptors were the best of all 5.

Nossob is the best. We will be staying in Nossob 12/05/09 - 16/05/2009. April 2008 a BIG male lion kept us busy day and night for 2 - 3 days. North of Nossob and Marie se gat are the best.

Cobus, in all our trips to KTP, we always spend at least a week in Nossob - have been to KTP 16 times already

When we were in Nossob in September, Francois took us for a night drive and we commend him for his knowledge. He made it really interesting and we saw animals and birds we would never have know were there, had we been alone - fat chance! During the day we had watched him struggling to drain the Nossob waterhole, knee-deep in mud, and he enlightened us on the necessity for this when we met him. Thanks Francois! Sorry we are so late in telling you how much we enjoyed our drive.

Hi expat
We met Francois last April and also found him to be a big asset to KTP
Please do tell us...why was it neccessary to drain the waterhole? Is it because it is a man-made waterhole and algae etc builds up.. I'm interested to know.
thanks so much
