Correct: a view to the Selati railway bridge into Skukuza. Parked up on the concrete bridge across the Sabie River. A beautiful location in the sunset.

Over to you.

Thanks Geoff, I will confess that the sky was darkened in photoshop.

It is Mana Pools, my most enjoyable safari experience to date, an island about 5 miles upstream from Chikwenya.

Over to you...................

Apologies for the appalling scan. Yes they're wildebeest.

Hmmm... I hope the upload works.

Looks like the Karoo.
