I have only seen one, on one other occasion, and that was Lonely Bull. A vagrant scrap on a map at least a decade or two after the the 1985 map that I have. 1978 would sound about right if you consider the a relatively large camp with roads was completed by 1984.

Although I recall driving with my family in Kruger during the period that they built H3. As you probably know, H3 replaced the sand road to Malelane (can't remember its original name). This originally was a sand road and was the road to see AWD.

Latest Lifers: Brown-Backed Honeybird; Violet-Eared Waxbill; Green-Winged Pytilia; and heard often but never seen - Yellow-Fronted Tinkerbird (±2m away in the open)

Thats correct, before the days of Berg-en-Dal and Afsal.

The S1 was also sand road and the H10 and H14 never existed. (mind you neither did half the camps we have today)

How many other roads are new/newish, or have been tarred over?
