After a prolonged period of unusually high humidity levels, relief finally came with a heavy thunderstorm in the early hours of Sunday, 22 February 2009, when the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park received very good rainfall in the southern part of the park.

Auob River
  • Twee Rivieren - 71mm
  • Mata-Mata - 18mm
  • Gharagab - 35mm
  • Kieliekrankie - 70mm
  • Nossob - 14,7mm

Although the Auob River has not flooded, it does look like a river again with huge pools of shallow water that is quite a rare sight. There has been slight damage to some of the roads within the park, however, this will be repaired as soon as possible and should in no way hinder the enjoyment of tourists currently in the park.

The rainfall received for February 2009 is just over double the long term average for each February during the past 40 years.

Tourists visiting in the near future can look forward to seeing the park in a lush green splendor.
