Jan,
Re the updating of the list - I visited KTP more than a dozen times and for the first time at our last visit saw warthogs. The first one was at Mata Mata in the camp close to the gate, and the other one was being stalked by a leopard close to the KAA turnoff !!!
What is the situation with them in KTP/estimate amount of them in KTP and are they a common sight - in that I was just "unlucky" to not see them previously ? I spoke to a couple of others and they also said they never saw warthogs in KTP.

Maybe some feedback from other formites on sightings of them ......

As far as I know they are not common at all and you are lucky to see them - there's one at Rooiputs too thats been seen by a number of mites on different occasions ... Touareg has some stunning photos oh him from December :twisted:
