Jan - :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

We passed Sunset Dam on 29 October on our way to Skukuza. Was hoping for some nice pics to share on this thread but unfortunately there was very little activity and to top it all it was totally overcast.

The dam was really full

As one of the most visited spots in Kruger, I bet there have been a few croc ambushes viewed at Sunset dam, both successful and unsuccesful!

Thanks Jan.

With all this rain around today, it's hard to remember how dry it was at Sunset dam back in July.
