Nkorho: the word

I was curious about this word, so I Googled it and checked Wikipedia, but did not find a "definition".

Does anyone know what "Nkorho" means? What 'language' is it?

Also, how do you pronounce it? Are the N, K and/or H silent?

Thanx for any insight anyone can provide!

Yes - the correct (phonetic) pronunciation, as I understand it, is 'Nnkoro' rather than 'Nukorho'

Hi Perdida,
I found this in this in the cam window:

Nkorho pan is named after Nkorho bush Lodge which gets it name from the Shangaan derivative for the call of the yellow-billed hornbill, a common and unusual looking bird from this area.

I think the H is silent.
