Taken in 1996 but I don't think too much has changed! :-)

Tshokwane is 1km north of the point where the H10 meets the H1-2. In relation to main camps, it is 50km/2hr south of Satara on the H1-3; 48km/1hr 45min north of Skukuza on the H1-2, and 54km/2hr from Lower Sabie along the H10.

Apparently there is still no running water or electricity at Tshokwane (I presume after the rains). Generators, porta-loos and water tankers are keeping the site up and running.

The green spots are the ranger's house and staff accommodation - the picnic spot is on the southern bank of the stream under the trees.
