You started upstream on the Timbavati, at Maroela, a house made of drink.
Then a tree made of canvas, Tamboti.

:thumbs_up: forestgump :clap: :clap:

A pencil or pen will be needed to start
It is hidden in here so don’t take off like a dart!

With the correct writing tool in your hand,
Head off east along this beautiful land.
Head East from Orpen

Perhaps you might notice a drink for a house
Or a tree made of canvas, not fit for a mouse.
Spot on forestgump Maroela and Tamboti Tented Camp :thumbs_up:

Now, stay close to the water along the way.
Although, it’s quite bitter, the Shangaan people say!
Timbavati River – The name is of Shangaan origin and mean ‘bitter water’ or ‘brackish water’

Many bushbucks may drink there, under the sky,
For it has been said, it will never run dry.
The explanations ‘river that never runs dry’ and ‘many bushbuck’ have also been recorded.

You should now be approaching the place of the frogs
Makukutswana – The name is of Tsonga origin meaning ‘place of the frogs’
Unless you’ve been held up by a sighting of dogs!
Stretch of the road known for Wild Dog sightings

Make sure you don’t miss a baboon, that’s waiting for you.
And you might want to thank him, for sharing the view.

Please be very careful, if you do stretch your legs.
If you go too far, you’ll be over the edge.
You are at Bobbejaankrans Look-out.

Well done forestgump :clap: :clap: :clap:

The boardwalk will reveal majestic rocks
Approximately 25 km south from water
A Buffalo underneath my bed at night

Yes Philip, you are correct :thumbs_up: :clap: :clap: :clap:.

Boulders is buit on stilts amongs big boulders and not fenced. A person walks on the boardwalks to get to the kitchen, bedrooms etc. There are sometimes buffaloes there underneath the boardwalks. Boulders is approx 25 km from Mopani Camp where the Pioneer Dam is.
