Wow, thanks Ndloti. Great info. Mind saying who the ranger is?

Senior ranger Ted Witfield built the hut when he was stationed at Houtboschrand (which is on the Timbavati river north east of Roodewal Bush camp .)
I briefly met Ted Witfield at a function in KNP (he retired from KNP more than 15 years ago) a week after I had been at Hells Eden and told him that I had passed by - his words were "I am jealous ..."

A legend in his time ...

Read GML Smits thread on rangers under "Special Interests" - "Lest We Forget ."
