Pioneer dam a few km west of Shipandane hide along the Shongololo loop .
KNP is sacred. I am opposed to the modernisation of Kruger and from the depths of my soul long for the Kruger of yesteryear! 1000+km on foot in KNP incl 56 wild trails.200+ nights in the wildernessndloti-indigenous name for serval.

The above was a guess without using Google earth .

It is at Lake Panic near Skukuza , between the bird hide & the dam wall - not accessible to tourists .

My first instinct was that it is N'wanetsi - it looks very very similar - but upon inspection I found that N'wanetsi doesn't have those rocks in the out flow...

Then it looked like a portion of the Olifants river somewhere in the gorge.... couldn't find it.

Flew over Orpen Dam and didn't think it fit but just in case ... and voila
It's actually the Orpen reservoir just below the dam.... although on this shot it all looks like 1 to me...
