:D :thumbs_up:

The entirely man made Hutchinson swamp lies in the central section between the two national parks sections. It was created by pumping water from a weir built in the Limpopo in to channels which fed the swamp. It created a huge swamp section which is a haven for water birds.

You are IT.

Thanks Rosemary!!

A question from a different angle:
which (small!!) national park is where the Sanparks' headquarters are situated. Name, where is it and what's the size? :)

You must mean the Groenkloof National Park. Situated in Pretoria (if that city still retains its name :wink: ). Size?? Not sure, but "baie klein" (very small). :lol:

Yip!! OWN you are IT.

I think the size is about 7ha, if it's still the same. :)

I know that they recently removed a portion of the land out of the Park, but not sure if the 7 hectares is what remains, or it is now less. Perhaps headquarters can enlighten us?

Good Q, WFG. :clap:

Which SANPark has been having an ongoing transfer of antelope into the reserve since 2004 in order to expand their numbers there?
