We were up there a week ago and the dam is virtually dry -- just some damp mud left, but the waterhole is still working. Will post a pic if I can find one !

Why is Klopperfontein not marked on the Honeyguide Kruger Map. It is only a little blue area on the S61. Not even named or marked as a waterhole!!


I see that it's now marked in the Honeyguide KNP Map issue produced in November 2007 :wink:

Has anyone perhaps been to this area recently? An update regarding current or recent sightings and conditions of the Klopperfontein area would be nice :) . I think northern Northern Kruger is :thumbs_up:

I have heard from one of our ex-forumites that they saw Eland there not too long ago :thumbs_up:

Grantmissy, also see WTM's posts here :

Klopperfontein was hammered by huge herds of zebra, elephant and buffalo. Not sure how that will look in month's time.

A visit to Klopperfontein at the moment is a must! Huge amount of animals hanging around it at.

Hi Grantmissy,
Update on Klopperfontein area as requested :D

29 July 2012

It was quite dry and muddy and animals struggled to get out of the mud at times and they all had beautiful black socks on.

Hallo there!

Is there a lot of animals at the dam and have any carnivores been seen there recently?
