Thanks OWN!

Which camp/s did Joao Albasini have links to, and what are these links?

When Ohrigstad was established in 1845, Albisini moved to Pretoriuskop where he obtained land from the BaKutswe captain, Magashula, for 22 head of cattle. He established a trading post next to the old trade route. His bearers made use of this route to carry goods from Delagoa Bay via Magashula's village to Ohrigstad. This trading route eventually became known as the Albisini Route.

There is a waterhole in the southernmost part of the park that has a Tsonga name for a potato. What is the name of the waterhole and where is it? :hmz: :hmz:

For those interested, the Zambhala waterhole is 6.5 km North-West of Crocodile Bridge in the Vurhami Creek.

I beg to differ from you all. Nswosweni, Gasanftobi and even the well known Matjulu are further south. Even Gardenia hide is further south.

Quite correct Rooies. But we don't have to be too technical do we now? The waterhole is 6,5 km from the Crocodile river, that is the Southernmost part of the park. :hmz: :hmz: :whistle: :whistle: :wall:

If no one wants to take it, I will ask the next question.

The Western Cape area is widely considered to be the area with the most diverse plant life on earth. Second to that is an area in Kruger. Where is it?

Whoa, Phil is not correct (yet). He is very near, but can't drive there by himself.

The area in the concession area around the pans on the Limpopo - Spokanyone and the other pans stretching eastwards along the river ?
KNP is sacred. I am opposed to the modernisation of Kruger and from the depths of my soul long for the Kruger of yesteryear! 1000+km on foot in KNP incl 56 wild trails.200+ nights in the wildernessndloti-indigenous name for serval.
