View of the gardens at Sabi River Sun, Hazyview, Mpumalanga
These pictures were taken quite a number of years ago, so I would imagine that some of the
trees and plants here, would be much, much larger today. Hazyview is a little "village" in
 Mpumalanga (North Eastern South Africa) and is quite central to getting around to other places
 in the area such as White River, the Kruger park, Sabi, Pilgrims Rest.        
Sabi River Sun is so named due the Sabi River running though it, and is one of the many
 options for accommodation in the area.

How beautiful South Africa must be! These are gorgeous scenes and I hope you can return there to see the changes. Very nice post covering 3 memes...I really like the water reflections!

Very nice looking and peaceful. How did you get rid of all the mobile phone towers? Photo Shop?

The scenery looks similar to that in the Hunter Valley in Australia, where I live. Lovely gently rolling country-side, so we're both lucky to enjoy it.

Hi Bruce, there were no mobile towers in sight ... remember Hazyview is very rural

My daughter went with her school in Singapore to perform in SA. She said it was the best experience she had esp the safari.
