Even mites that that don't know how to navigate GE can get this one.

There was another loop very close to this one posted on this same thread a couple of years back... I'll leave it for a while and see if someone gets it.

Looks like Matlarhi , about 5 km north east of the Napi loop on the H1-1 Napi road ?

Approaching from the north west , 2007 .

I haven't been on the Napi trails Nlodti, so I won't question your pic... but according to my map that koppie should be Mlaleni and not Matlhari....

Am I right or wrong? :hmz:

Not sure of which one it is ... according to my map it is the latter , we accessed the area after a drive along a north orientated road which more or less corresponds with the road along the burn plot .

Yes, it is Mlaleni.

And your photo is indeed correct Ndloti, but it is not Matlhari.

Sat there watching some rhino ambling past, a large number of Impala and even a giraffe or ten.

Beautiful area!

The Andrew Tinker map I have is possibly inaccurate as far as topographical features are concerned - I must get a set of 1:50 000 maps of Kruger ...
