Sunset Dam is a great place to go. Bring some crackers, cheese and a beverage of choice. Beautiful spot and so close to Lower Sabie that you can get back in time before the gate closes.

Sunset Dam is a favourite of mine too 8)

I love watching the antics of the troop of baboons that always make their way home to their tree on the river bank via the dam at sun-downer time.

Sure? That is until your get lost in your own thoughts while watching the sun set, and suddenly you are brought back to earth with a knock on the car's window...

Some places we go...
From biyamiti... the Biyamiti causeway
From CB ...the Gesantfombi dam if it has water
From Satara ...Nsemani dam
from Skukuza...the delaporte waterhole or my beat the Mathekenyane rock/lookout
From Olifants... the Nwamanzi lookout or the low level bridge near Balule
From Letaba... the Letaba river bridge or just one of the benches in the camp at the river
Sigh now I want to be there :wall:

Well sadly thanks to the misbehaviour of some people it is no longer permissable to have a sundowner at a waterhole, you cannot even drive through a gate with booze in your car if you are not resident in the Park! Better not get me started on this topic!

Sundowners in Kruger are the second best time of the day – after a great day in the bush and looking forward to prepare dinner on the braai coals. (Best time of day is an hour or so before sunrise). Seeing that drinking is no longer allowed it is nowadays best enjoyed in or outside the comfort of your accommodation watching the remains of the day. One of our favourite Kruger sundowners remains gin and tonic – to fight off the mosquitoes and malaria.

Adaptation to the process, thats all.
I can still sip a coke at my favourite sunset spot and a bit later on be at my campsite opening an ice cold beer. Still better than sitting at home in JHBG :tongue:

Ok, so we cannot sit at a waterhole to enjoy a sundowner anymore ... do share how you enjoy your sundowners now?

This is to share how we enjoy our sundowners in Kruger, not to 'moan' about the change in the law re drinking at picnic sites etc :wink:
