Thats the right place , Nungu .... we are running out of easy places and only the cryptic and thus difficult ones remain .

We are ending up posting questions of places invisible from ground level , more difficult than the previous one , that take hours of painfull searching on GE .
KNP is sacred. I am opposed to the modernisation of Kruger and from the depths of my soul long for the Kruger of yesteryear! 1000+km on foot in KNP incl 56 wild trails.200+ nights in the wildernessndloti-indigenous name for serval.

Here's another one that might not be too difficult...

Many moons ago we drove a Kombi that had a very tempremental reverse gear. As we came around that corner we drove straight into a herd of Ellies standing in the shade on the road.... never before and never since have I sorted out that reverse gear so quickly :whistle:

Yes Ossendryver - it is the Satara, Orpen area - but that's a bit too general - I need the exact spot.... :rtm:

Very close now Ndloti - but not the S100 :twisted:

Ok Ndloti - even though it wasn't the S100 you were in the general area... seems no-one will find the exact spot....

It is infact on the S41 - but not where it meets the S100 - about 4kms south of that junction, just after crossing the N'wanetsi spruit, the loop is on your right. :tongue:
