You started at Mafotini waterhole - that's exactly 26 km from Mlondozi.

Well done Johan - 26kms from Mafotini to Mlondozi it is :clap:

Mafotini got it's name from the Mozambicans who walked through the park and had to spend 14 days in detention as illegal immigrants before they were allowed to continue their journey. The footpath they used passed nearby. The waterhole is close to the crossing between Salitje, Old Tshokwane and Mlondozi roads.

Turning left onto the S128 towards Lower Sabie we continue until the H10 tar road. Crossing the tar road we continue north now on the S29 - Mlondozi loop. We continue past the Muntshe loop on our right but do turn right to Mlondozi. I can remember sitting on the wall of this look-out point when I was maybe 5 years old - my fav place in KNP. :thumbs_up:

Oumie's SO painted this pic of Mlondozi Dam:

Ok, to satisfy Elzet's craving:

Satisfied, I get up from my seat overlooking the water. Already having seen hippo, crocodile, waterbuck and maribu stork this morning. Last night, while walking the perimiter fence I also saw genet, scops owl and kudu amongst others. Tysie's ambles out the gate heading south. We soon turn right and quickly find that we're heading in the opposite direction. Some impala and more kudus are found in the drift just before the junction to our right. We decide to first visit the waterhole straight ahead and are not dissapointed when we find a couple of white rhino's in the mud. Now we can head back and take that junction...

Hi Nungu, welcome back (nappies et al)

Driving from Berg en Dal to the Matjulu waterhole before coming back to the S110?

I spent the night in Berg en Dal and was overlooking the dam at camp. I left camp, turned right onto the Matjulu loop. Passed the S110 that goes to Steilberg, and went onto the Matjulu waterhole, where Glen79 saw these 2 rhinos:

Tysie steers away from the elephant and the dam, the first of it's kind, then turns east. Through the dip and turn left at the small turn-off. At this memorial we see the most beautiful crested barbet with it's yellow face, black crest with black and white wings. Also spotted are the local troop of baboons but fearing an invasion (or is it a violation??) of Tysie we turn around and back east again. Not far ahead we find the tar road and decide to visit an old friend. But we're dissapointed... he's on holiday....huh? :huh:

Hi Nungu

Started at the Mitomeni Dam on the Voortrekker (H2-2), stopped at the Outspan memorial, joined the H3 tar road and went to visit Japie at Afsaal?

I left Mitomeni Dam - the first concrete dam in Kruger - and turned left onto Voortrekker Road. Turned into the Outspan Memorial where I saw the Crested Barbet. Back onto Voortrekker road until the tar road H-3 running from Malelane Gate to Skukuza. Turned right and immediately found Afsaal on my left. This is the home of a Scops Owl. Apparently he's on holiday (don't know if he's back yet) - but here's a pic of him taken by Crested Barbet:

After dodging a bullet on the dam wall Tysie and I head back to the main road. Turning right we head south. Not much to see here other than the usual ellie, kudu and warthog. When we turn east I can sit in Tysie and just enjoy the wonderful view...
