I could well be wrong, but I have never heard of Punda Maria picnic site.

There is a communal braai area in Punda camp, because the majority of units don't have an individual one.

There is a picnic site at Pafuri, which was closed after the Jan floods, but I believe has now opened, with limited access.

That's the best I can do!!! :thumbs_up:

Hi Crested Val

Thanx for the reply. Yes that is how I have it as well, but what is this on the satelite image. It is close to the Punda Maria entrance gate and it looks like an entrance with a ablution maby and braai sites or tables in the area.

Interesting :hmz:

Yes, that is open. It is at the gate and is called the Day Visitors Area :thumbs_up: We visited there a couple of weeks ago.

What is also interesting is that it is not mentioned in the flood updates where all picnic sites, camps and gates are listed. :hmz:
Is it not regarded as one of the above?

Being very far from the flood plain it was probably never affected by the floods. Pretoriuskop Day Visitors Area is also not listed for eg.
