Punda and Shing - early Dec 2014 - wet cool and not much to see. Good biding
Punda and Shing - early Oct 2015 - dry, hot (very) and much better game viewing - Average birding.

Oct 2015 - Although very hot and no rain, it was obvious that there had been good rain a few weeks before , as there was a lovely flush of grass and some pans/wallows with water in. It looked decidedly "park like" Beautiful driving under the big trees (and low grass) on the red rocks roads and Mpongolo loop. (and mahoni and Pafuri) Lots of ellies and a pride of lion that moved from riverbed to riverbed (Shingwedzi to Mpongolo) . as always , nice buffs , kudu, Nyala etc. Lots of Zebs around klopperfontein.

I started this thread five years ago in 2011. Thank you to all that responded with incredible images and feedback.

What went wrong since then ? Lets fire up some smart experiences in this beautiful area of KNP. Beginning of May 2016 I shall be in Punda and thereafter in Shingwedzi (and I know a few other guys as well !) and it would be fantastic to learn the latest sightings around here.

Please assist !
