A favourite memory of mine is having a drink with my grandmother at the END of the road, (which I know is a lookout, Bert :P ) on my birthday!

A worse memory is witnessing a "difference of opinion" there between two of my mates as a student in 1988, which led to the one mate being stranded there for a while until I could convince the driver to return! :redface:

A little extra titbit taken from "A Dictionary of Kruger Park Place Names".

Hillside: Borehole, 17km north of Lower Sabia, next to the Mlondozi Creek on the western side of the Munthse Hill. .. named by Dr U de V Pienaar, referring to the locality of the borehole (c1980).

Is it at the bottom of the park, just as you turn on the S25 after entering at Malelane?
Seen these flowers many times but haven't a clue what they are :redface:

Yes, Freda, I suppose it's at the "bottom" of the Park! :roll:

But you won't see mountains on the S25! 8)

On the way to Berg n Dahl, and I dont think the flowers are convolvulus, I think they are too pink.

I have seen that flower often, just wish I knew its name :(
