Nope. They don't tend to go that high.
The most Northern BBM updates for a long time have been the tropic of capricorn.

Hi Rufie

As far as my knwledge is concerned, there is no specific group only for that particular area but there are groups for the whole Park.

By the way Will you be visiting the North anytime soon.

I have a guide on my groups that tracks wild dogs near the Mopani, Shingwedzi and Punda Maria areas.
He lives in Shingwedzi.
Maybe he can help you out? :)

Enjoy and have a great time!!!
I hope you see and share lots!

Is there a code of conduct when reporting sightings or is it anything goes?

Can anyone join? For example Jeep Jockeys, or maybe Rhino Poachers.

No rhino sightings are discussed on any of the groups, and the administrators delete the users if someone does give rhino locations. Each group has users who become the conscience of that group and lodge issues (very few) with the administrator who's right it is to call the shots. Parasites or members of a group who do not contribute constructively and actively get deleted quickly as the slots are limited and much in demand: each group can accommodate a maximum of 30 on BBM
