Map::TBA

Terrain: The terrain is generally flat. In open & rough open areas the ground under long grass is uneven with small pits & small areas of subsidence. These have NOT been marked on the map. Previously mapped tracks are becoming indistinct or overgrown. The forest area has shallow gullies with gently sloping terrain that is mostly fast running. Patches of lantana are becoming larger & some areas of lantana are now impassable.

Full leg coverage is recommended including sock guards to stop grass seeds attaching. Mosquitoes are still a problem, bring good insect repellent.
