Better late than never - isn't the flower a Goats Foot / Ipomoea brasiliensis - wild guess .............

Description :
A sprawling creeper, long runners bear pairs of bilobed leaves (resembling a goat's cloven hoof). Flowers trumpet-shaped, bright purple.

It can be found on the S50 south of Shingwedzi where the river road turns away from the Shingwedzi river, but before you cross the Dzombo stream.

Hello Chris!

Agree with you, it's called Dipene, where the Mozambique natives were recruited by WENELA, the organisation tasked with recruiting mineworkers in the very old days!

They had to have their feet "sterilised" against foot and mouth disease in the dipping bath, hence the name.

I don't think it had much scientific merit, though! :shock:

Where in Kruger will you find a sign-post that:
- indicates a dirt road to a View point
- when driving East, the arrow on the sign-post will, in error, indicate the road to the left 8)
- when driving West, the arrow will be correct
:roll: :roll:

Nwaswitshaka road
KNP is sacred. I am opposed to the modernisation of Kruger and from the depths of my soul long for the Kruger of yesteryear! 1000+km on foot in KNP incl 56 wild trails.200+ nights in the wildernessndloti-indigenous name for serval.

Presently I cannot find the Nwaswitshaka road on my map :huh:

Can it be the Nwaswitsontso loop (S86)?
