Refurbishment of Lionspruit Hides

The Marloth Park Honorary Rangers have completed another big project of re-thatching and repairing the bird hides at Impala and Ngwenya dams in Lionspruit. These two facilities will now be a pleasure to visit. The old water tank at Impala dam self-destructed during our operations and is presently being replaced with a nice brick support structure and new tank. We would still like to replace the bird posters which have faded badly.
