    What beats me is their booking reservation program.If you go to booking reservation Nossop camp site is full,but after closing time at the gates there is still plenty of camp sites open.

    Seems there is no communication between reservation department and the camp it self??
    The reason is that people book a power stand,get there and decide to camp next to the fence with no power points.
    On the sytem it shows as fully booked,but with many power stands vacant.

    Any update on the drought? I have seen some reports of rain around Rooiputs last week. Anything rain further north?

    I have a reservation for January 2020 and need to make a call (was there in May 2019 and was bad)

    No, the adventure already stopped when the Upington - Askam road were tarred. Before that it was gravel all the way from Upington, now that was an adventure, first in the back seat of Peugeot 404 station wagons, much later my own Landy.

    Great to hear that. We were there in October, very dry. The eland were over hydrating and just dying at the waterholes. Saw lion at about every water hole south of Nossob.
