The Timbavati

On the main road between Orpen & Satara (H7) there is this little turn-off with a great view of the river!

I've been scanning a lot of my old slides and this is a favourite. I'm not precisely sure where it is, one of the river crossings on the S90, but not sure which. Does anyone recognise the spot?


The photo was taken on 9 March 1987.

That is a stunning gorge. Did blackwater tubing down the gorge a couple of years ago, and you go past some stunning spots in the gorge. That view just reminded me of the fun we had :D

This photo of the Olifants river was taken in Jan 2006 after heavy rains. It was a magnificent sight to behold.
