Origin of Name: Named after the Mlondozi Spruit, which flows east of Lower Sabie Restcamp to meet up with the Sabie River at the foot of the Lebombo Mountains. (Kloppers & Bornman (2005) give the origin of the as coming from the “Balondolozi”, a section of the Inyatsi Regiment of Mswati II who were stationed on this spruit during their battles with the Tsonga (1856 – 1860) i.e. “The place of the Balondolozi Regiment”.)
Range: Lower Sabie area of the Kruger National Park, although he was also seen as far south as Crocodile Bridge and as far north as the Tshokwane Picnic site.
