No Wildlover - more North than that... plus it is a very famous river - I just never seen anywhere on the forum what the translation meant. Only found out recently...

No Wildflowergirl... bit more South

Letaba is kinda the opposite - river of sand...

Although - the river that never dries out is mostly sand as well... only about 4 weeks of the year will it actually flow... the rest of the year it's mainly made up of sand with puddles in between....

Living Free ?
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.
