Name two significant points of geographical interest that is attached to Cape Agulhas.


Isn't Cape Agulhas a bit too far from Kruger? :whistle:


Now now, mites, don't get the garments tangled. :shock: The quiz doesn't specifically say that the places have to be in the Kruger National Park - all that the title suggests is that it needs to be places that (Paul) Kruger might have visited in his lifetime? :twisted: :twisted:

But, seriously, let me apologise upfront here for NOT paying attention when it was warranted. :redface: I see the oversight, but we need to move on, and of course Rooies has helped me with that by answering correctly! Indeed the official point where the Atlantic and Indian oceans meet, as well as the southernmost tip of Africa.

Therefore, Rooies is IT. :clap: :clap:

Note to self: It's always great to make an error or two ... keeps me feeling human. :slap:

Ndloti, exactly where is this place? I am not a 'Southerner' and can't remember where exactly this place is. All I can remember is that it is on left hand side of the road if you travel from Lower Sabie.

Rooies , I do not think there is a historical plaque - I think the trees may have in fact fallen down by now .
According to my 1992 (?) Jacana "Make The Most Of Kruger" map book with foreword by Dr Salmon Joubert & sponsored by Volkskas Bank the location is just after the Vurhomi stream on the left side of the H5 road travelling towards Mpondo dam shortly after leaving the H4-2.
I will consult the authoritative "Neem Uit Die Verlede" by Dr U de V Pienaar.

It is exactly where Ndloti discribed it to be.
This is how it looked like according Google Earth on 30 July 2011

With a view over the river I have a good chance to spend time in solitude along a less used track.
