It's a little hard yes, I agree... No, not Knysna forest, you might be a little surprised where it is... If you can see anything behind the trees that might give it away. If no one guessed it by tommorrow late-morning I'll post another pic or two of the same place.

It looks like the Swartland(Porterville area) down below.

Another guess: The waterfalls near Porterville - Beaverlack area...

Yip, knew that pic would give it away. That's the Waterval hiking trail up the mountain at Laatson Camping Site just outside Porterville.

You must definitely go and do that trail at Laatson. In summer its especially good, even though its hot, most of it in the shade.

Yes, please someone ADD SOME SHOTS!
