Did You Know


Lake Panic, a small earthen dam 1,5km north-west of Skukuza, derives its name from the panic caused when the dam's newly built wall threatened to break after a cloud burst.

Doispane is found 17km north-east of Pretoriuskop on the western banks of the Mtshawu Creek. Meaning ‘dustbin' in Tsonga, it is named after a person who lived there during the early years of the Park, and pronounced the same way he did. Ranger Harry Wolhuter camped there on his travels between Skukuza and Mtimba, where he lived. Previously spelt as Doispan.
