Also read about it last year.

TEBA stands for The Employment Bureau of Africa.

You can read more about it here http://news.kruger2canyons.com/2012/01/ ... -past.html

I was privileged to have visited the old TEBA Pafuri camp on a few occasions - A truly special area of the Park. TEBA has now been closed and a new SANParks camp is planned for the area.

Morning all :hello:

Johanrebel is right. There is no new camp planned for Crookes Corner. What we are busy with is the planned renovation and upgrade of the old TEBA facilities close to the Pafuri Border post that will become part of our Tourism accommodation inventory. Added to this we are also planning to provide for a Rustic camping site in the Pafuri area on a site to be determined by an EIA process.

At least there is some light in that a rustic camp is planned .
Will the TEBA camp upgrade be an upmarket set up ?
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.

The roadside less than 200m north of the Levuhvu bridge - the "tree looking" object is actually a gabion (wire net containing stones) which appeared to have been rolled up by the water flow which was more or less perpindicular to the road direction .

Thanks for the photos Johan
