The number I have on rock art sites is a little higher Trrp-trrrrrrr - but your number is close to what I believe was the original number catalogued by Mike English. From what I've read, Conraad de Rosner is carrying out a much larger Lowveld survey and added an additional 57 sites in the KNP in 2007 for a total of 177 odd.

Feel free to post T-t

Two ZARP members were ex officio Rangers of the Sabi Game Reserve namely Isaac Cornelis Holtzhausen (1873 - 1966), served 1898 - 1899, and Paul Machiel Bester (1890 1952) also during 1898 -1899.
Bester was stationed at Nelspruit and Hotzhausen at Komatipoort.
