In my Google Maps - Streetview works everywhere else but NOT in Kruger - just shows a photograph of a place?

Ok not where the arrow touches the green - it's hovering about 3mm above the spot it's pointing out

:dance: - I have just found Murphy's law is sometimes invalid. I do not remember passing this point in the last few years however the area reminded me of Pretoriuskop. Looking on GE for a dirt road turning off one of the routes traveled by the streetview camera in the vicinity of Pretoriuskop my very first selection was the turnoff to Shitlhave Dam with Mount Shitlhave in the background - and it was a perfect match.

So the answer is - standing on Napi road looking down the entrance road to Shitlhave Dam. :D

H4-1 (so many road junctions there) near to Skukuza , about 100m eastwards from where where roads to causeway over Sabie river and day visitors picnic area and road to technical services converge .

Ok I don't have any more clues - I thought everyone knew that dead tree - it's on Eloff Street, a little loop with no name just before Nkhulu approaching from Skukuza's side.

Thanks Nungu. :thumbs_up: I've seen it subconsciously so many times, but then to try and place it in retrospect is a sometimes a challenge!

I suspect ot has been rebuilt since I was last inside in Sept 2008 ?
I recognised the area to the left ... I don't often get inside these townships so often .
