Cradle of Life by Eksteen Jacobsz

The winding road from Nelspruit to Badplaas is scenic and dramatic. The road takes you first through the Barberton Nature Reserve Pass and then to the Nelshoogte pass, topping out at nearly 5000 feet above sea level. Soon afterwards you descend into the Komati River basin and just after passing the Vygeboom Dam you arrive at Cradle of Life.
