The first is from the bridge facing east. I have one of the west side too, but it is not such a great pic. The other was taken from one of the river loops on the S63.

Excellent photo's, DinkyBird. :thumbs_up:
We've visited the area in Dec'11 and to add to your photo's, I got some of the bridge with the beautiful trees.
It is such a beautiful place that we are going back there in Dec'12 again.

Next visit to Kruger - Dec'12

Clicking on photo will open HD image.

Taken in January 2012, about 2-3km downstream from the picnic site on the way to Crooks Corner. Can you see the impies drinking water or either one of the two fish-eagles? Ja, I know they're small :tongue: One of my favourite places on our little planet.

Beautiful places make it easy to get beautiful photos.
