Tropic of Capricorn @SANParksKNP @SANParks #SA #PhotoYatra #TheLifesWayCaptures

Hi Friends, 

I never knew that there is a Tropic of Capricorn milestone inside the Kruger National Park as I never traveled so far up to the Mopani Rest Camp earlier in my life and trips to the national park. This comes after you go from Mopani Rest Camp towards Letaba Rest Camp on the main road.

As you all know, Tropic of Capricorn is the parallel latitude south of the equator. It is at this latitude that the sun's rays strike the earth vertically on only one day of the year at noon on or about 21 December.

Fortunately, I was there on the 26th December so the sun was shining so brightly and the temperature was to the tune of 44-degree celsius. It was so difficult to even open the car window as the warm air would take away all the airconditioning of the car.

This also marks the beginning of summer in the Southern hemisphere and the beginning of winters in the Northern hemisphere. This latitude of the south is called The tropic of Capricorn because the sun enters the constellation of Capricorn at the Southern Hemisphere's summer solstice.

The Kruger Park has made that you can come out of the car at this point and take some photos but at your own risk and also they made a line of bricks on the road to mark the Tropic of Capricorn.

When you travel, you learn a lot as you come across somethings you read about in your school geography lessons and when you come across that facts in real life, it wows you.
