The S62 runs along the Engelhard Dam on the northern side of the Letaba River. The road is rather stony, but definitely worth the trip, with a few turn offs towards the Dam, offering beatiful views along the waterside.
The Matambeni birdhide is located on the edge of the water. This is a hide where you can spend a few peaceful hours, with a beautiful view of the dam. Crocodiles, hippos, fish eagles, heron, jacana, plovers, storks, bee eaters and lots more can be seen here. On the opposite banks giraffe, elephant, buffalo, waterbuck and kudu can often be seen.
The road runs through mopaneveld, and 10kms from the tar road you will reach the Engelhard view point, where you have a magnificent view of the dam wall from above, with the Lebombo range towards the west.
