Travelling through Eierkop to Skitterykloof to experience the sounds of silence, to see leggy toktokkies and perhaps Gemsbok and the brightest stars at night in wide open spaces…. In which South African National Park would you be if you experience all of this?

In which South African National Park did the below happen?

During the 1800s soldiers created a chessboard on the top of a Koppie (hill) in this National Park. While hiding out during the War, they played chess with their fellow soldiers in an old nearby fort by transmitting moves by means of a mirror, which had the official purpose of communicating warning signals. The story goes that a certain farmer – unbeknown to the soldiers - picked up the signals transmitted by the mirror and started a game against the soldiers whilst sitting on the Stoep (Veranda) of his farmhouse.

While we wait for Lepardfan :)

Which Sanparks Camp is situated within a dry riverbed and is surrounded by tree savannah? Apparently sightings of brown hyena are fairly common on night drives from this Camp.
