Hey...

Im not personally to familiar with places as such and I ended up taking 36 GB of photos and video on a 4 day trip.
I did however find the image in iPhoto and luckily it's GeoTagged, attached is a screenshot of where it states it was taken, hope this helps?

As you come in by the main entrance go due west, do not take any one of the little turnoffs, you carry on straight and you will see a "koppie" and eventually you will ride into / through it.  That is the spot from were this photo was taken.

If the wind is howling, stay away from that spot.
