    It sometimes snows low down our side of Hans se Kop. That road and telephone poles looks "faintly" familiar.

    There is a bridge that looks a lot like that near Nelspruit, though it was less overgrown when I jumped off it with a rope tied on in 1997 it could be it?

    Either the rope broke or did not catch around your neck during jump.

    You are still alive to tell the story.

    Exact same construction type though and the similarity except for the greenery is striking.

    Same number of arches and same pillar below the arch, probably the same engineer.
    The jump is a long story, I jumped 4 times, dynamic climbing ropes and harness with backup rope. Bungee jumping had just started at that time and we had heard about it and wanted to try it out.

    from the pics I get on google looks like that bridge has a fairly pronounced curve to it and the overhead electric lines on that bridge aren't in the photo posted

    Am not sure if there is a line going from sheppie to kokstad but that might qualify

    Ok had to google where the Mpushini river is. This bridge is nowhere near PMB. Closer to Freestate

    It's somewhere between Amersfoort and Newcastle. You see it when you drive to the coast from the Ermelo side. If only the gold fish memory can remember where... It's one of the highlights on that road.
