There are so many KTP fanatics out there which knows the park quite well, this is now the opportunity to see if you can ID certain waterholes.

I will post a picture of a certain waterhole and after two days from posting I will post the name of the waterhole. It would help the new guests to the park to learn the waterholes and know what it looks like when we say what sighting were at which waterhole.

Good luck

Definitley Auob river, thought of Gemsbokplein, but not enough trees.
I agree must be Sitzas. Different to ID without the parking area under the tree at the Sitzas viewpoint though

I do agree - Sitzas. One can see the shadow of the big camel tree in the left hand side of the photo. I mean right hand side of the photo.

And I want to see the serious photographer that can keep a sensor clean in the Kgalagadi 8) :)

What a fantastic idea KG :clap: :clap: :clap: Helping us get to know our beloved KTP even more! I must say Sitzas looks very different in March when we have visited the park the last 3 years. I go with further south closer to TR maybe Gemsbokplein :hmz:
