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.

Anybody think they know where this Black-crowned Night Heron (and Egret) was seen?

That is a tough one ...
Could it be the waterhole on Mphongolo loop slightly to the south of the access road to Sirheni camp , close to S56 & S57 junction ?

I think this is at the "secret waterhole" off the S39 - unsignposted on the right hand side of the S39 after you leave the H1-4. The S39 being a gravel road which goes past Roodewal and further west along the Timbavati River and towards the Timbavati picnic site.

I thought the rock looks like it is from the northern area - Shipandane hide ?

Obviously the photographer was level with the water. Must be a hide or somewhere you can get this type of pic. But where? Along the Shigwedzi river somewhere ?

Very hot Delene. And the long telephoto lens has foreshortened the scene too.
