Nkumbe a few days ago - there were more than 100 elephant spread out over the plain , black rhino & calf , many giraffe , not a wildebees or zebra in sight ...

A passing rainstorm .
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.

Some people have or had some brilliant sightings here :thumbs_up:

During July this year we saw giraffe, elephant and impalas. The view over Kruger from here is impressive 8) .
