According to 'Kruger, Portrait of a National Park' The area around the Nyala land base camp has the most diverse botanic habitat in Kruger. It boasts river and stream, sand stone formations, rocky outcrops and a lot more.

Who is IT? Anyone with an interesting question.

Let me try. :think:

In which camp will you find a sesame bush? Maybe the last one in Kruger they say.

:clap: :clap: Phillip1. :thumbs_up:

A variety of aloe species are a real highlight. Next to the filling station there is a sesame bush. This is probably the only accessible place in the Kruger National Park where it can be seen.

Quote from here.

You are it Own :thumbs_up:

The far north is the birding mecca of SA because it has so many Afrotropical species not seen further south.

Yep, many tropical birds have their southern ranges around Pafuri and Punda. Give me a day to think of a suitable Q. :thumbs_up:

I have a question for to keep this going until OWN gets back!

"In 1940 Stevenson-Hamilton took the White Rhino off the list of KNP resident mammals. 21 years later four adult white rhino's were released into a specially constructed enclosure near ____________ (which camp), traditionally one of their favourite haunts."

Please name the camp :)
