Totally correct! I suddenly remember I have a copy of the pic with the name visible on my system too! :lol: I'll put it up on monday.

Now, I've been there a couple of times, and never saw game there... My bad luck, or?
Birding was good though.

Does not seem like too many people are interested in this one....

Answer is the N'waswitshaka river where it crosses the H11 just before Skukuza (coming from Paul Kruger gate). Thought it might be a nice one, as I've never seen anything but reeds in this river. You can see by the debris that the road was completely flooded, and thus the road was closed. I was wondering what people staying in Skukuza were doing, as there is no other way of getting there except via a massive detour to Malelane or Orpen. Worst thing is that we entered through Phabeni and nobody even told us the road was closed.

During the major floods of 2000. Not sure how long it was closed though, but it was a few days I believe.

Shibavantsengele lookout , the turn around point at the end of the Cul - de - Sac seems to be the normall stopping point , but the Lebombo eco trail comes through there , I suppose they camp out of sight of the turn around point .
Pity someone did not roll the stones and logs back over the road and replace the no entry sign after going through , as it seems that tourists may be driving past the no entry point .
