Scops - thanks very much for those photos. Welcome and keep up this quality of posts please.
I could remember those Malelane "stable rooms" from about 55 years ago and this is the first photo I have seen of them. I was about 5 years old at the time and my parent's took us there a few times that I can specifically remember. Malelane being a gate camp was often the first nighter and I remember one trip that started at Malelane and ended at Punda Maria. One of the vehicles in the party had dry ice in the boot (like a giant coolbox) and that had the beers and meat on ice for at least a week. Many more recollections from that trip.

Looking at these posts and reading some, is this not exactly
why some of us here detest, vehemently detest any further
exploitation of this park???

This place is where time stands still!!!, in our life so to speak!!
and needs to be respected for that purpose of it's existence!!

Man has stripped and plundered this earth to the bone, leaving
little to remain for that. Then again we have umpteen archives
filled with documentaries and history and what ever,.......


But for the ambience, a sinister bug that creeps beneath the skin

forever enticing the heart!!!

The old Lower Sabie reception, taken in 1981. The reception area was directly behind the old gates. The entrance was where the night drive vehicles park. The buildings are still there but don't seem to be used any more.

This is the old Satara Reception in 1978 just before it was demolished.
