In mho, this HAS to be in close proximity to N'wanetsi picnic site. Otherwise, definitely somewhere along the central Lebombo mountain range

It is disturbing that no water can be seen from the lookout at the Nwanetsi picnic site.

That whole area is still very dry. I hope the catchment area get proper rain before the end of the season!

Any mites know whether they just supply gas or do they supply the cookers as well?

On Monday they still had the cookers, so I suppose it would still be there :lol:

Been there yesterday. In January when the Ratpack where there, there were very little water in the river. Now it looks like it always looked! Full!

Saw hyenas, impala, kudu and waterbuck close to the water.There were even a lost croc!

When there in August after a long absence I noticed that the fatty braai pans are rinsed/washed over the water tap area - a lot of animal fats and foodscraps go straight into the drain .
Rather an unpleasant odour was emanating from there - not good for the ground water ? It seems the same applies to Mlondozi .

Is there a seperator/trap system installed in the drains at the picnic sites ?
KNP is sacred. I am opposed to the modernisation of Kruger and from the depths of my soul long for the Kruger of yesteryear! 1000+km on foot in KNP incl 56 wild trails.200+ nights in the wildernessndloti-indigenous name for serval.

Voëljiedam as we call it (because of the birdies on the mural)... we saw the biggest barbel from up there, 2 years ago...
Have you seen KNP from the SKY yet??
