This waterhole was named after Tom Duke, Lower Sabie's head ranger for 20 years, from 1903 to 1923. As a boy, Duke survived an attack on his eastern Cape farmhouse during the Frontier Wars. He went on to become a decorated hero during WW1.

Duke waterhole has water all year round and is a draw card for a variety of animals, including lion, which may sometimes be seen drinking water at dawn.

There are often white rhino in the vicinity as well.

The photos above was taken during the drought period in 2015/16.
