Somewhere near Mathekenyane or Stevenson-Hamilton?

Matekenyane (Granokop) is correct :thumbs_up: . Looking East(ish) just as you crest the top on the road.

If I remember correctly Matekenyane is "the place of the (biting)sand flea" Never had that problem, but then maybe they have been eradicated by the rubbish that accumulates up there :sniper:

Thanks BG - My first choice was Mathekenyane - the last time I visited Stevenson Hamilton it was too overgrown to have such an open view.

Here is one that is a little different - It is obviously not Kruger :tongue:

This is the view I want when I write up my thesis - the peace and quiet there is remarkable!!
