Thank you for the interesting topic and stunning photos. Sunset dam is a perfect spot for those last few photos before the gates close. :cam:

Sunset dam is one of the few places left in the area where one can actually see animals come down to drink as the majority of water holes and dams have been shut down. Expect more overcrowding in the few places that allow tourists to take a break from driving and sit and watch animals.

I agree, DB :thumbs_up: I do love Sunset dam.

This is a picture taken once most of the herd had moved on.
