The movies are supposed to be shown every evening at Skukuza. Lower Sabie, no!

Skukuza area. Where the H11 joins the H4-1/H1-2 junction.
A few hundred meters turning left towards the H1-2
This stream appears to be artificial?
I think it is coming from the Skukuza day visitors area. Runs through a pipe under the road and eventually into the Sabie.
Any ideas?

:-?

The stream may be the overflow from the pool pump at Skuks day visitors, Dzombs, not sure exactly, maybe a google earth pic with circle? 0:

We'll survive the curtains...the same fabric as my throw on the couch back home, from Valencia wholesalers! O/\ O\/

I have just got back from KNP and also noticed this artificial stream because you could smell it from a fair distance. O-/

It rained on the 4th of October and the entire Sabie river stank the next day. Nkuhlu smelt like a sewerage plant O-/ O-/ Action is urgently required upstream before there's serious long term impact on the park O/

So this is runoff from the sewerage plant????? 0*\
RP - Can you bring this to the attention of your contact?

Re the curtains - well in the scheme of things is minor.
But it does show a lack of proper planning -O-
