Richterveld National Park - Malmokkies are mist banks, also known as Hurries by the Nama, that roll in from the cold Benguela Current along the region's west coast to supplement the meagre annual rainfall - less than 100mm - refreshing the inland ecosystems.

Good question.

In the Richtersveld, locals call it 'Ihuries' or 'Malmokkies' and it makes survival possible for a range of small reptiles, birds and mammals.

So if the locals in the Namaqua National Park also call incoming fog/clouds, Malmokkies then I would agree that the Namaqua National Park also be a correct amswer.

A bit of trivia; some people also refer to Guinea Pigs as Malmokkies.

Malmokkies = Marmotjies = Guinea Pig :thumbs_up:

Forest and Phokojwe you are correct. I was browsing over the weekend in SANParks Capture Experience book compiled from photos taken by visitors to the Arid parks and found the pic on the dogs quite interesting.

And a link for those that did not Google. :wink:

Well done FG, Phokojwe. :clap: :clap: Hope these dogs are adept at finding speckled padloper tortoises, as I'd dearly love to see one at some stage of my life. :wink:

In FG's absence let me try one :hmz:

Which park has a prominent landmark (granite dome) measuring around 700 metres (2,300 ft) by 100 metres (330 ft) and 30 metres (98 ft) high.?

The only granite outcrop that I can think of that is that massive is perhaps Moon Rock in Augrabies National Park?

Moon Rock: A massive exfoliation dome or “whaleback” which is a prominent landmark of Augrabies Falls. Walking to the summit will give one of the best views of the park and its surroundings.
