Krugerpark, South Africa
This image shows parts of the famous Kruger (in total almost 20.000km²) and Limpopo national parks, divided north-to-south by the border between South Africa and Mozambique, with the curved, almost ‘M’-shaped, Massingir lake and Dam prominently visible in near-black colour. Construction of this dam, the second largest in Mozambique, was started in 1971 and finally completed in 2006-2007. Rio dos Elefantes (in Portuguese) or Olifantsrivier (in Afrikaans) riverbeds, extending from the southwest in the image, and Great Letaba river, coming in from the north, feed into the lake from its western side. The Elefantes river in the west, shown by its vegetated banks in red, further extends into the well-known Limpopo river. Finally, the city and mining site of Phalaborwa can be seen in the blue and red colours at the western edge of this daily synthesis image, captured in early November 2015.
