Hhhmmm - being chased by the mighty Luxemburg ;)

 

I reckon we should encorage EVERYONE to go find an Earthcache in the coming months.

Checking my database, I get 106 events for Ethekwini since the beginning. So it seems that this is since then :)

This includes events that have not yet taken palce ...

Yes, it includes all events past, present and future - from the beginning of time.

The odd event or few that had to be cancelled before it took place is also included.

FS:         5.4%
NW:         3.1%
Limpopo:    2.0%

Last year:

Densest 1km radius in South Africa:

It is (still) around GC3WXRQ MEGA SA 2012 -Voortrekker "Uitspan" Travellers Inn, at the Voortrekker Monument in Pretoria: 33 caches.

To put this in perspective, this is 1261 times the average cache density of the whole of South Africa!

Awesome - I'm really surprised by the Namibian caches in the top 10 and agree - very surprising about no Egyptian caches. Must still be their political issues causing a low tourist influx. However as a reviewer - I still have a lot of caches being requested for publishing in Egypt - probably more than Namibia!

 

I also thought Kenya may get a cache in.

 

DANIE - any change of looking at new cache growth over the past year - i.e. number of new caches in each African country over the past year? (And especially Egpyt - perhaps looking at cache growth over the past 5 or 6 years as a possible "political situation" indicator)?

Thanks Danie - love all the stats that you publish.

 

I am certain that would look very different in Gauteng if the Power Trail(s) were not there. When you do provincial comparisons please include Gauteng's "beautiful step sister" as well - North West? Once I return to South Africa later this year it is my intention to get NW Caching a lot more publicity through getting the number of caches up and the interest of the Gautengers increased that they spent more time in the Platinum Province. In the past the Gautengers have supported us well, but we need to ensure that they spend more time in our midst in the future. :P

My Ivory Coast cache find rate has dropped (I used o have a 100% hit rate - now someone placed another cache :yikes: )

 

Thanks for the stats on Egypt - could I ask for another stat on Egypt - how about the finds on Egyptian caches for a similar period? The hides seem to be fairly constant? But judging from your previous post on no Egyptian caches in the top 10 African finds - that may be more useful? The Arab Spring was in 2011.

how about the finds on Egyptian caches for a similar period? The hides seem to be fairly constant? But judging from your previous post on no Egyptian caches in the top 10 African finds - that may be more useful? The Arab Spring was in 2011.

The following graph shows the total number of finds per year for Egypt. (Years ending on 14 April.)

There is something strange going on here - Egypt's cachers breezed through the Arab Spring, but suddenly, during the past year, the number of finds dropped to almost half of what it should be. Does anybody have a theory why?

I am sure it is because the amount ot tourists visiting Egypt has dropped over the past year due to the political turmoil. Most of the Egyptian finds are by tourists.

You may be right, but why only now? Are things now worse than during the Arab Spring (or shortly afterwards)?

Danie - I am no tourism expert, but I suspect it could be the time lag between people making (and paying) their travel arrangements and actually going on the holiday, sometimes booking / paying up to a year in advance. Also Egypt has had a particularly bad political time with martial law, frequent changes at the top and so on.

 

Just my 2c. :)

A more detailed view on the Egyptian finds:

This graph shows the monthly finds in Egypt for the past two years. Whatever happened, it appears to have started somewhere in the middle of this graph, about a year ago.

Not sure about that - there was an immediate drop off in tourists from Feb 2011! Very very clear.

This is a very interesting stat. Got no clear idea.

There are currently 498 EarthCaches in Africa, of which 482 are active.

Of these, 207 are in South Africa (202 active).

 

Wonder when we'll hit the 500 (active) EC's. Just had a new one published in Barberton - so a good likelihood of getting that milestone soon.

African cache owners with the highest Karma:

Karma is the total number of finds on an owner's caches divided by his own total number of finds.

For cache owners with at least 20 finds:

1.  Teamnegativ:  791
2.  RedRocks:	  164
3.  Ballangen:	  145
4.  The Als:	  121
5.  tenxerest:	   87
6.  PRIMUS CACHER: 76
7.  bajazzo:	   70
8.  Três Marias:   69
9.  Team SlyFoxx:  66
10. penolhunter:   64

Of the 63087 cachers who have logged at least one find in Africa, only 2086 (3.3%) have a karma of larger than 1, i.e., only 3.3% contribute more than they take.
