We were so appalled by the sprinklers running all day, every day in the Karoo NP. While the residents of nearby Beaufort West have trickle flow for 36 hour stretches! (see more here) And they have exactly the same short sighted problem in the Grand Canyon NP across the Atlantic. My picture shows what the Karoo NP says … and what they actually do!! At the same time Upington in the Northern Cape is battling with terrible floods.
