If I am not mistaken it is somewhere close to Malelane.

In 1976 Dr U de V Pienaar collected some several species of molluscs there. some of these had been recorded and others not although it was believed that they should be present there.

Welldone, WFG!
It's major claim to fame is that it is the highest point in KNP......... dunno about the molluscs though :)

Your turn!

OWN, an answer is due. If we do not hear from you by noon this Friday, we will take over this quiz :)


I warned you :D [/quote]

Thanks for the warning, Rooies; I see you're improving. :twisted: :lol:

Seriously, apologies for keeping you all waiting - I simply overlooked that I had asked a Q here. :redface: And a direct apology to Forest Gump - you were correct; Tankwa Karoo it was. :clap: :clap:

This park has moved because its first location was not suitable to achieve what it was established to do.

I agree, Mokala it is. But was it not moved because of land claims on the Vaalbos National Park? As far as I can remember, the land was also scarred by diamond mines.

Good try ... but no.

Vaalbos was de-proclaimed and no longer exists.

Mokala is actually a new park, though to be fair many of the animals come from Vaalbos.

So still waiting for a "correct" answer. :twisted:

Bontebok National Park - In 1931 the first Bontebok National Park was proclaimed on an area near Bredasdorp. The Park was later moved to the area it is now, to suit habitat requirements of the bontebok.
