I have found a new spot. On the historical Voortrekker road where the transport drivers, dealers and trekkers with their ox wagons camped out in the 1800’s to have a rest. It looks very peaceful there for a house with a big stoep to be built. :tongue:

There are so many suitable places on our beloved Kruger National Park which makes a choice rather difficult :hmz:

But .. Leanawel would you mind having a neighbour?

They should detour the tar road towards Lower Sabie, and move Lower Sabie camp south, and put me between Sunset Dam and the Sabie river with my own small stretch of private road :mrgreen:

I can think of many potential sites for a house in Kruger!!

I think the best would be somewhere on the Nkumbe ridge - looking out over the plains. It might get a bit windy, but what a view!

Close second would be at Mlondozi - get rid of the picnic site and build there - looking over the dam (hopefully with water in it).

I agree with you Hippotragus!

I can imagine a little quaint thatched cottage on Nkumbe, I was thinking more Shirimantanga Hill, Skipberg, Nsemani.
