Sean, I so enjoy your writing. Would you look into the correct name of the SSW? I believe that it is named from the two rivers that run through it-the Sabi and the Sand. I think the name is Sabi Sand Wildtuin, without an ‘s’ on Sand.

Thank you.

Wow-enjoyed reading this! Things I never knew! Thank-youso much!

I once heard someone sa that the wildebeest looks so funny that it must have been designed by a committee! But they are very efficient when there is no human interference in their lives.

Can you share the numbers with us from the annual census?

Interesting reading Sean. In Cry of the Kalahari by Mark and Delia Owens something similar happened in Botswana when the goverment erected a vet fence (foot and mouth fence). Thousands of wildebeest died when they couldn’t get through to the river for water. It is the second biggest migration of wildebeest. Luckily the fence was taken down between Kruger and Sabi Sands.
