Moira, we love visiting this hide and usually do so each year when we are in the area.
but often in May it has, and I suspect it may very well be so this time with the limited rainfall, very little water or even be bone dry.

According to my book of Kruger names, its a Zulu word - Ntanda-nyathi - (the waterhole) preferred by Buffalo.

As you will read there have been some extremely interesting sightings there over the years.

Thank you. The information is much appreciated as is the correction about the spelling of the name. I am glad others find it as charming as I do.

We had a lovely sighting of an ellie there last week. He walked around the hide (and sent people in the car park running for cover) crossed the river a bit downstream, then proceeded to walk along the opposite bank giving everyone in the hide opportunities for photos. I'll post some photos when I sort them out.
