Correct again Wall-E :thumbs_up:

Image

The spruit just under the dam wall at Grootvlei is called Hlamvu - translated "Bullet". From there we turned south on the S50 until we reached the turnoff to Shibavantsengele Lookout. Unfortunately you can't get out of your vehicle here but Gamespotter managed to take this pic from the car:

As we leave the waterhole I remind Tysie not to get confused with the same dam and turn right towards camp. After 4 kms of nothing we turn right again and immediately get rewarded with a flicker amongst the leaves. Moving forward and back we finally get to see a beatiful female leopard - about 3 years old. She dissapears quickly and we move on. On our right we spot the lone ellie bull, not too old and no tusks of real significance. We continue on and get to the tar road between the gate and camp. We turn towards the gate and stop for a little steenbok darting across the road, dissapearing in the thicket. Onwards and at the pan we find a couple of zebra and ostriches. Not too bad for a short 8km's or so...

Remember the waterhole where we start has the same name as a dam. :whistle:

Still no-one :hmz:

Clue1: The waterhole where we start has the same name as a dam.
Clue2: You can alight from your vehicle at the dam with the same name - but not at the waterhole.

OK :doh:

Clue1: The waterhole where we start has the same name as a dam.
Clue2: You can alight from your vehicle at the dam with the same name - but not at the waterhole.
Clue3: The waterhole is in a spruit - also with the same name.

The same name 3 times :shock:

Hi Nungu

You outid yourself here and may be lost foreva...

From the Nwanetsi waterhole turned right on the S131, right again on the S96, right again on the H9 towards Phalaborwa Gate and end up at the Rhidonda Pan? The 8km is throwing me...
Why are the animals always on the webcams when I'm not?

Well done Wall-E

Image

Starting at N'wanetsi waterhole - not to be confused with the dam - we turn right onto the S131 towards Letaba. On this 4km stretch we saw nothing, but turning right onto the S96 all the action started. We turned right again onto the H9 towards Phalaborwa gate until we reached Rhidonda pan, where DotDan spotted these:

I think where I got you Wall-E... in total it's about 12 kms - but remember the first 4kms we saw nothing - so the 8km was just since we turned at the S96 :twisted:

I almost bring Tysie to a standstill... but looking as carefully as I possibly can I still can't see the Anti-Poaching unit's base. I can see all the way to the river on my left but nothing other than tall grass and green trees. It must be here somewhere, but not for us to find today. As we leave the river the bush opens up a little, but only just a little. We see a nice zebra herd with some young ones in between. A warthog mom with her young, all on their knees right next to the road and the obligatory Kudu bull. Just as we cross the low waterbridge, we turn right. Not far and we get another choice of right or left. I thought there might be something at the waterhole to the right and we quickly take a detour over the spruit and to the left. Yes, there was - an Ellie in the riverbed.
