    Default Urgent Help Needed: Limpopo River Waypoints

    I am urgently looking for waypoints of Limpopo River wiers and other POI's for a planned canoe trip on the river.

    I'd be hugely indebted if you have can help with these...

    The Limpopo is a very fickle river. Many a man has met his end in it. It is either bone dry, or like now it is a killer. Plenty logs and such. Hungry crocs.

    This is a trip you must not try litely. She bites back.

    There is a weir about 300m downstream of Beit Bridge.

    This is what we're using but the problem is the images are often too low resolution to see some of the detail (including wiers). And the other problem with GE, is that if the images are taken at high water levels you may not be able to see the wiers.
