Here is my weekly update:
The H10 is also returning to its former glory with Zebra and Wildebeest slowly returning from up north and the Lebombo Mountains. Small herds are mostly visible north of the S129 and the Munshe back loop……


Seems they went mountaineering, and they are on their way back :wink:

Mark are the Mountain Zebra found in the Darlington dam area of Addo because I have never seen any in the main game area around the main camp.???

Boulder, I have just checked my copy of Addo Elephant National Park Offical Guide and it does have Cape Mountain Zebra listed as a species found in Addo but it is marked as being found outside the main game viewing section of the Park.

That sounds correct because the habitat apparently around the Darlington Dam area is quite similar to Mtn Zebra Park, so it makes sense to have them there. The Spekboomveld is totally unsuited though ie the main vegetation type of the main game area. I must get one of those guides...I just run around teaching myself and make my own observations but having a guide will help.

I think it's more keeping an eye out for danger, watching both ways, and being friendly.
