What was the first name the "Government" Thought of to call this park. This park would later be known as the Sabi Game Reserve and was expanded into the Kruger National Park in 1926? (Hope my question make sense).

Thanks OWN

I'm not going to troll through 130 odd pages to see if this has been asked before, so.....

How many known rock art sites are there in KNP and which animals are most represented?

The number I have on rock art sites is a little higher Trrp-trrrrrrr - but your number is close to what I believe was the original number catalogued by Mike English. From what I've read, Conraad de Rosner is carrying out a much larger Lowveld survey and added an additional 57 sites in the KNP in 2007 for a total of 177 odd.
