:shock: It just looked like a Border - never been there though!

Sorry, there's no picture but ........

There is a small camp called Shimuwini but there is another Shimuwini - what and where is that?

No - it's actually got nothing to do with the camp :twisted:

(Have just checked map of Kruger......Shimuwini Dam is not shown :? )

:big_eyes: You had me searching far and wide PNF :D

:hmz: There is a Shimuwini River that appears to be a tributary of the Nkulumbeni River (Langtoon Dam area) which is north of Shingwedzi Camp! Is that the one you are looking for PNF?

ANOTHER Shimuwini :shock: also not on my map :? :? (Must get a new one next month :redface: )

The one that I'm looking for is in the North and not "Toooooo" far from Shingwedzi :twisted: but "hidden" :twisted: :twisted:

Keep on hunting Rosemary......... and good luck!

Ok...... sorry for the delay - no power + elderly laptop = unable to get into Internet!

Have now consulted 3 map books - the Shimuwini that I've got hold off is in Kruger; East of the H1-6 and is shown on 2 of the maps but not on the third ( :? ) The Honeyguide and Tinker maps show it - the Primeorigins does not...............
