Hi All

Anyone got any old pics of the Pafuri area in the 60's and 70's? In particular the original fever tree forest!

Cheers

They are not really of the camps and picnic spots…but thought I will add this here instead of creating a new thread…almost on topic :?

From THIS photo (taken in 1945), it seems lion sightings have always created traffic jams :lol:


What a great photo - A traffic jam yes! but they were rule obeying visitors - NO-ONE out of their cars :thumbs_up:
