Is there any truth in the rumour that the Nossob hide is going to be removed??

Apparently because the new riverfront chalets will be impacted on by the current hide and the photographers do not like the elevated position??...

Eish.

That will be a let down for all of us who enjoy the use of the hide.
Hopefully not true, as it would not keep the majority happy.

Does anyone know what the status is of the proposed additional chalets etc that were proposed for Nossob?

Morning 'mites;

I have sent an email to my colleagues in Kgalagadi asking them to confirm if this is indeed the case. Will revert back once I receive a reply.

Dear All,

Amazing what a rumour can do. Where it started I have no idea. There is NO such thing that the Nossob hide will be taken away for any reason.
What I can confirm is that plans to upgrade and build a new hide on the same spot for guests to enjoy. There is no date set yet when it will happen but it is on the cards.
The renovation will take place due to the age and status of the current hide.

So to all the loyal visitors to the park and to Nossob which makes use of the hide, there is nothing to worry about.

Regards KG
