Thanks so much, now I will follow the river upstream and end up at the place where the sound of metal objects rubbing together comes from.

Hopefully I will be able to assist you one day as well. :clap: :clap:

What was the first name the "Government" Thought of to call this park. This park would later be known as the Sabi Game Reserve and was expanded into the Kruger National Park in 1926? (Hope my question make sense).

Thanks OWN

I'm not going to troll through 130 odd pages to see if this has been asked before, so.....

How many known rock art sites are there in KNP and which animals are most represented?

Art on rock?
Ok I know at Hippo pools there is an antelope on the rocks there...
Isn't there rock art near Pretoriuskop or Berg en Dal on the wildernis trails?
