Have walked to the north of Bangu water hole a number of times along the Bangu spruit . The soil has a lot of clay and attracts large amounts of game at times .
The Bangu spruit runs in a north easterly direction into the Olifants . It cuts through the Lebombo mountains in a spectacularly beautifull gorge , which the renowned conservator and wilderness trail pioneer , Dr Ian Player , described as one of the two most beautifull wilderness areas he had ever visited and I agree with him , as I was exceptionally fortunate enough to be on a wilderness trail walk from the top of the Lebombo down through the gorge to the confluence with the Olifants .
I was more exceptionally fortunate to walk there as I understand this is not a regularly walked route and is avoided due to the steep inclines and the narrowness of the gorge which makes evasion of dangerous game difficult .
Ja Ndloti I have done that area many times as well. The normal Olifants Trail doesnt normally go there as you state but if you "Choose" your trails ranger properly and allow him to bring his wife and newborn baby to stay in base camp as an example of what we did once then our reward was Gorge/Lebombo slopes (Lots of Nyala and Crested Guinea Fowl and lions taken by surprise) and a walk from Balule under the Olifants camp (when they didnt have morning walks from camp) all the way back to Trail Camp. His Wife dropped us off at Balule...Saw 3 x Pels and a pair of White Backed Night Herons. I dont want to mention the Trails rangers name because he is a current section ranger in Kruger. Bangu with Klopperfontein are my 2 favorite waterholes
