Mapungubwe: Photos from Previsit visit

Unread postby NetEk » Thu Jun 06, 2013 3:34 pm

We are doing a quick visit to Mapungubwe. We are driving up tomorrow to take up some stuff for our camp and coming back on Sunday.

We will not have enough space for all this stuff when we are going up at the end of the month with all our other provision.

We stay on Samaria 1 which is part of Mapungubwe from the point that the fences are all removed and the animals have free movement between us and the park, but on black and white we are still negotiating to become part of the park.

If you drive down the road on the western border of the eastern part of the park we are on your left, where the no entry Private land sign is.

I will take some pic's for all that are wondering how it is looking after the flood.......

Especcially for Naomic the Mopani's are looking great for this time of year, all green and not turning red yet.

Hi there - welcome back! You returned to proper winter in Gauteng! :D

Thanks for the pics - cannot believe its the same place, the Mopanies were only dry stumps in January! What a beautiful flower to find in the middle of winter!
