The turnoff road to the Albasini Ruins is a few meters after the Phabeni Gate.

There are enough space for cars to park and for people to visit the ruins. There is also a very neat hut that contains some of the artifacts found at the ruins.

The second grave at the ruins belongs to Mothasi Mavundla “who lived all her years in the Kruger National Park” and died in 1965.

Leukos, thank you for posting these excellent images. :thumbs_up:

I love Albasini ruins and you have captured the uniqueness of the place. I will stop there and imagine what it must have been like to live there so many years ago.
