Don't we all know that feeling? :slap: I have read 'The Borrowers' and believe it speaks truth!
Looking forward to it :popcorn:

I have managed to scan some maps .. one is in 4 parts Its a more modern version of the one albert sent but still fairly old There is a picture of an ellie and a morris minor .
The dark lines are our trip taken on our honeymoon in 1970 but the map is a lot older than that

The other map is taken from a brochure dated 1949 again slight changes from alberts map

These historical Kruger maps are very good. I like them. I think those who own some of these Kruger memorabilia are so lucky. Thanks Albert for a great thread :thumbs_up: as I think many of us are interested in seeing the maps and photograps of yesteryear :D .

This the legend to the original map (the English one).
Note the "Native Kraals" which were still in the park. It now becomes quite clear where some of the names come from...like the Salitje road, and the Babalala picnic site...

Elsa, that is the exact map i downloaded, although, if you look on a conventional map of the roads to Tsokwane, the roads are different?
