Here's the first easy one:

Great quiz! Will have to go dig out my kruger books to get proper names for these roads. They could be tricky.

HI,HUGH, When you open google earth,you will have to click on the man icon on the left of the page, which says street view, which then will enable you to have a street view, hope this will help.

Heyyy the Wacked Tazz is correct - Tshokwane Road to Lower Sabie, just before the bridge - Mlondozi Loop left and Old Tshokwane Road right. :thumbs_up:

Hi Hugh, you have to enable the streetviews option while in Google. Then when you zoom into an area you will see "cameras". Click on those and you can see if your house needs a paint :thumbs_up:
