Broadly - near Phalaborwe

Bit closer- Die Eiland Holiday resort and the Hans Marensky nature reserwe....

Sorry dit was seker 'n dom vraag, maar ek het hierna verwys:

So kamp eerste aand al in die rivier bed... was nie seker of mens 'n molotots reserve of iets kry nie. (sien nou dis die rivier se naam)? Ek ken glad nie daai area nie, dis hoekom ek vra.

For those of you who would like to see the route in google earth, please download the attached .zip file.
Unfortunately I could not upload the .kml file directly and had to zip it. Simply unzip the file and it should be a .kml file
You can just install Google earth on your PC/Laptop and double click on the file.

I calculated the route and the tar/dirt road section is 844km

Thanks Michael. I see that the Northern pink line does'nt connect to the River Entry point. Why is that?

Ok I have re-done the route as there was a missing section which I lost somehow.

Seems to be displaying all the sections now, but please let me know if something isnt working properly.

1ste Ingang by Molotots 23°31'33.15"S, 30°24'43.82"E
2de Ingang by Molotots 23°30'51.32"S, 30°25'9.19"E
Dzumiri - Nood Bradnstof 23°34'13.01"S, 30°42'16.33"E (Julle 4.8 manne moet hierdie coordinate solank save op julle GPS'e :lol: )
Uitgang uit Molotots 23°39'25.16"S, 30°53'35.80"E
