RosemaryH wrote:(H) Which hill's name, just north of Olifants, is said to mean "place of the zebra stallion"?


RosemaryH, this info is different from what my source says.
1. I don't know the meaning of Mangwanduna. It would be interesting if that is infact what it means.
2. It is the name of a koppie or hill - your direction of where it is, is just a bit vague. The Jeopardy question I'm looking for is very specific about which koppie it is.

So, unfortunately I would have to say NO to your answer - but you are very close.
Have you seen KNP from the SKY yet??

On further research after reading your post Nungu , I would like to present the following question, if I may…..

(H) What is the name of the hill on which Olifants Camp is situated?

Nungu, very different to my first question - I will clarify once you are satisfied with the question, so as not to spoil it for someone else wanting to give it a bash, if my question is not correct :wink: :)

Very interesting Nungu and something I did not know at all.

I could not find Mangwanduna on any of my maps :big_eyes: I then referred to my book New Dictionary of South African Place Names – Peter E Raper and that stated the following:
Mangwanduna - Hill in the Kruger National Park, some 11 km north of Olifants River rest camp, at 24 00S, 31 43E. Of Shangaan origin, the name is said to mean “place of the zebra stallion”

After your post I then found the following - taken from A Dictionary of Kruger National Park Place Names

MANGWANDUNA (GR716453 - 2531BD)
Latitude 24:00:14 south, longtitude 31:44:05 east.
Hill on which the Olifants rest camp is situated. TSONGA: Mangwa nduna - "Zebra Stallion" (N J van Warmelo). Previous spellings: Magwaduna, Mangwa Nduna.


Great quizz Nungu - now I know something else I never knew :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up: Thanks!!
