The story behind the image
The Mapungubwe National Park is probably one of the mostly unknown jewels in the portfolio of the South African National Parks. It sees very little traffic from foreign visitors, at least compared to the Kruger National Park,
We visited the park in 2011 and were deeply impressed by the landscape and the wildlife. Here, we met our first Rhino. Here, we enjoyed a beautiful boardwalk along the top of the trees. And here we saw three awesome countries in one beautiful spot, at the Confluence Lookout Point.
I could not resist capturing this breathtaking panorama which is composed from multiple images.
This panorama photo was created from five individual shots with my trusted Canon EF 24-70mm 2.8L USM lens, and I love zooming in to refresh all the memories.
