Hugh, such nice pics ... Thank you. I remember a trip to Satara in July 1980 where we stayed in those mobile homes. They were on the east side of the camp (and the back door opened up to a view of the old rubbish dump).
That last pic could only be Nkuhlu.

And the heat from the morning fire was most welcome on nippy winter mornings. I wish to correct myself re the old Satara mobile homes, they were on the west side of the camp (I forgot the sun set in the west back then :wink: )

I think this is the last one
Taken in about 1988 as Ballechin is the little boy in the front and he was 14 at the time.

Thanks Ndloti - could well have been. It was definitely in the South as that particular year we stayed at Skukuza!

@stf - I agree... what a beautiful little Alfa!

@ Livingstone,
Lovely photo of Mlondozi, last time I was there was in July 2010, it was chock'n block full of water.
(wonder how far that ellie on your photo is by now)



When we saw Mlondozi in September 1970 , there was only a small puddle of water , and a lonely ellie having a mud-bath . But the best was the hundreds of animals - impalas , zebras , wildebeest - coming down to drink , slowly approaching , approaching , then suddenly scattering and running away , before turning around , approaching again . Certainly a sight to see , and I will always remember :D
Nowadays , it contains a lot of water , and animals do not gather like that anymore - a pity :huh:

Hi Bat

I think it is Orpen Dam Lookout

I love the Giulietta. I had a 1600 GT junior. Endless problems but loved it too.

Heres one of Mlondozi lookout in 1965

I've never seen it that dry. :( I wonder if that tusker is still alive? :hmz:

:clap: :clap: My applause goes out to the person that started this topic :clap: :clap:
WOW! This is the first topic that Iv'e sat thru and read all 23 pages of it, somewhere between looking at all these amazing photographs you found, I found silent tears running down my cheeks :cry: remembering my late grandparents,
I remember between them and my mother they practically raised us in the Kruger.
we went on holiday their 6 times a year, most times my gran wouldv'e come and fetched us from school and told the school there was some emergency and whisked us off away to the Kruger for at least a week, her Padkos was the best, sarmies, boiled eggs and meatballs,
My grandfather always had biltong and sparkles with him lol,
my grandfathers fav camp was skukuza and my gran was lower Sabie so every time we went they always had to stay in both those camps,
I remember the one day we were driving on the tar road between lower Sabie and skukuza going to skukuza, my grandfather drove over the bridge just before skukuza and then wanted to drive further, my mom drove after him to find out what he was up to and she asked him where hes going, he told us, Lusaka I'm going to Lusaka, my mom asked him what the ruddy hell he intends on doing in Lusaka when he shouts at my mom and says " I never said I'm going to Lusaka I said im going to Skukuza"
He revved the engine and turned around lol
still today we have no idea what was going on his head that day but it was hysterical at the time to watch him go off like Donald duck throwing a temper tantrum :lol: :lol: :dance:
