Albie, that hide was due to be repaired during 2014. I am not sure if this has been done yet.
Best is to call the park. They are very helpful normally.
Its called Maloutswa hide.
I agree with you, it's a fantastic place to sit and watch. I have seen many intereting things happening there :)

My girlfriend and I are visiting Mapungubwe in August for the first time. :D :dance: Unfortunately we are travelling in a 2x4 Isuzu with difflock and I have read that about 100km of the road network in Map NP are 4x4 tracks? Will a high clearance bakkie make it on these roads and if so are there any that I need to avoid without a 4x4? Would also appreciate any other handy advice that forum members can offer?

What is the weather like in August? We will be staying in the forest tented camp during our winter.

You will most likely have warm to hot and dry weather.
