Location: Red sand, why do I keep thinking of red sand?
If I may give a hint...
I usually buy 2 mapbooks. One I keep in pristine condition (need a new one now, it's at work for some odd reason, and getting rather thumbed), and one I mess on.
I mark sightings on it, where I made panoramic photos and which way I was looking, and another little thing..
I make photos of surroundings, even noting the time/date, and use them later for the Where am I quiz. And need the reference! That's always great fun to play..

I have just received this map and thought it very useful in order to calculate distances from the various towns around the park. :D

Fantastic!

Although we know the area pretty well, this map is very clear and stylised. It leaves out all the other features which tend to clog up other maps, in cases when all you want are road numbers and distances.

Thanks, Elsa.

While browsing through my notes and papers I came across this old map of the KRUGER NATIONAL PARK, going back to the 1960s. It has really brought back very fond memories.

The cover.

Great stuff :clap: I have a huge old map on the wall of my office which dates back before 1945, because my home town Welkom, which was only proclaimed in 1945, does not appear on the map. On top of the map the following appears;

"The Union of South Africa including Southern and Northern Rhodesia and Bechuanaland Protectorate"

It also gives the approximate number people in all the major towns, and it shows Nelspruit with an estimated white population of 1200!

I will try and get a pic of the Kruger area and post it here.

This map was also given away with the book The Kruger Park and other national parks by RJ Labuschagne published in the 1960's.

Thebi, maybe this is could be where I got mine.
Oom Lappies was a very knowledgable and intresting man.
My copy of the mentioned book is one of my proud collection.

It has many interesting articles and historical photographs of places and people and fauna and flora.

Please post a pic Rooies, would love to see it, please try include a bit of Nelspruit/White River, I believe there are now thousands of people in that area, not 1200!!!! :big_eyes:


I will try my best, but it is very large, 2m X 2.5M and is framed. It will be a huge effort to get it out and scan it.

A very interesting map. No Berg en Dal????? What I found most interesting was the Kruger Census i.e.:

Your Map 2005 Map
Buffalo 10000 31060
Elephant 6566 12470
Leopard 650 1000
Lion 1200 2000
Cheetah 300 200
Wild Dog 350 350
Impala 200000 101000

I could not see Rhino mentioned on your map.
