Dokweni Waterhole

Dokweni waterhole is a bit further from the road, on the H1-7, just north of the Babalala picnic spot. The name Dokweni means "wishing for something" in Shangaan.

Elephants often come by here for a drink, and herds of buffalo and cheetah have also been seen in the area.

Dzombo east and west Dams

The Dzombo West waterhole is located on the S144 (old main road). The Dzombo East dam and Dzombo West waterhole are next to the Dzombo river, which had one of the Magnificent Seven named after him.

This elephant roamed this area around Shingwedzi. His left tusk weighed 55,5kg and his right tusk 56,8kg. He was shot by poachers in 1983, but his tusks were never recovered.
