We were there on 03 May 2006 and it was beautiful.
It has become one of our traditional b-fast spots when we stay in Letaba.
The electric fence underneath the fever tree was broken down.
The person on duty informed me that the elephants are regular visitors now but it seems like they are not doing any serious damage.
I will try and post a pic for the first time....

They are available for sale. Unfortunalely, it was impossible for me to bring one home on the plane.

Ditto for me, but I thought they were quite unusual. I've seen other uses of old tins, but none so attractive as these floral arrangements 8)

We thoroughly enjoyed the Makhadzi Picnic spot in April. The road to it was quiet but very good gravel. We saw Elephants and Zebras on the way. The picnic area was an Army Camp protecting the border..hence the extra toilets.


Biyamiti and Berg en Dal in September

This picnic site is really worth a visit.
-It's clean
-It's new
-The drive there is very interesting
-The interpretative centre provides some history
-There are some creative pieces of artwork created from basic cool drink cans on sale from the picnic site manager
-It provides for an excellent 'half-way house' between Letaba and Giriyondo (a worthwhile round-trip I must add)

And outside again, but still with lousy photographic weather:

Definitely a picknicsite where I want to go back to, not only for the extremely clean, and rather large site, but also for the drive and the very helpfull guy working there.

No, it is on stilts because of a policy from SANP on making a "small footprint" I remember KNP spokesman told us about it during Operation Duke.

Nico, stilts will not keep snake ous LMAO :wink:

Not Loams, but I believe that "footprint" means impact on / contact with the land, so less affect if a building is on stilts than if it has an on the ground foundation.
