Tropic of Capricorn

The Tropic of Capricorn is a parallel line of latitude of 26 degrees and 30 minutes and is the southernmost point that the sun passes directly overhead at noon, which it does on summer solstice, 21 December - the longest day in southern Africa.

The Tropic of Capricorn can be crossed just north of Mopani Camp.
