Neat trail, oddly enough, in part of South Africa (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

natal

'part of south africa' is the definition.
(I know this)

'neat trail oddly enough' is the wordplay.
'oddly enough' indicates alternate letters.
'neat'+'trail'='neattrail'
The alternate letters of 'neattrail' are 'NATAL'.

'in' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for natal that I've seen before include "dealing with delivery" , "Colony once" , "of an ass?" , "KwaZulu-____ , South African province" , "South African place" .)
