Hi Chip.
It seems we are of approximately the same stable.
I also have/had the map indicating the whereabouts of the different animals, it was interesting to study at home while at home but I found that unfortunately the maps were not issued to the mighty herds so they could not always oblige. :)
Maybe it would be a good idea if you could scan your copy and post it here, I am sure very many forumites will find it very interesting.

I have dug out and restored my map similar to the one Ndloti posted on the previous page.

The posted map indicates Shawo, which was the old Shawo picnic spot which was later replaced by the Mooiplaas picnic spot.

My map which is a 1985 edition does not indicate the picnic spot, it indicates Mooiplaas.

Therefore the assumtion that the map is late 1970s - early 1980s seems correct.

Dear Chip,

I am an avid collector of Kruger memorabilia and this includes a number of maps. This is great one and thanks for sharing!

Kind regards.

JOEP STEVENS

Joep, A belated welcome to the forums. When you feel like having a break from sorting out all our woes and troubles, would you be able to share some of this memorabilia with us? We'd love to see them and perhaps share some of the memories that go with them?

I have an old Kruger Map, it is in very good condition, and I am trying to establish which year it has been printed. Here are some clues:

1. It has a lion on the front cover and it has the emblem of "Rondalia Touring Club" on the cover;
2. At the back it has a Total garage advertisement;
3. It has been compiled by Map Studio Productions, and it is map 6 in their range;
4. The following sentence appears in the map: "Information from official maps reproduced under Government Printer's copyright authority number 4525 of 14th July 1971"
5. Another sentence: "The entire Kruger Park is open only during winter months, that is from the 1st of May to the 15th of October, but during the rest of the year only the portion south of the Letaba River".
6. There is no Pafuri gate, no Kruger gate, no Berg-en-Dal or any bush camps.
7. Punda Maria still spelled Punda Milia.
8. Nshawo resting spot is on the map.
9. Gorge picnic spot is on the map.
10. It features beautiful drawings of animals and birds.
11. No census of animal numbers indicated.

My guess - early 1970s.

Hi
PLEASE help ... I am looking for the Distance table that shows travel time & KM's between camps. Used to be on the old website, so far all I can find is travel times from gates to camps.
Can anyone point me in the right direction or post a link?
Thanks
Jen

I have the latest software of Garmap and all the maps loaded.

Now to my knowledge and printed maps of KNP I have seen there is quite a number of roads available to travel on Garmap and it is more that are shown on the printed maps?

Is there anybody that has traveled some of these additional roads or are they management roads as well?

I am trying to map all my roads and once in KNP to tell Mr Finkelstein (GPS) where to go to and from there I can just laze away and drive and if I am waiting I can also check my time of arrival and kilo's left.

It always ends up in where to go? Where is the map? Give the map to me!

Mr Finkestein will talk to me and I will steer into that direction!
