Mapungubwe National Park
Media Release: Mapungubwe reopens its gates after heavy floods
Date: 28th January 2013
Mapungubwe National Park and World Heritage Site (MNP&WHS) has re-opened its doors after a week’s closure due to heavy floods in the park. The Park was closed on Monday, 21 January 2013 and has now been reopened to the public, except for the museum which will reopen later in the week.
Park Manager, Fhatuwani Mugwabana said “The mop-up operation is still underway, with most operations almost back to normal. Although we still have another week before we can reopen the museum, the rest of the park is open to the visitors.”
“For those who want to sleep over, our camps, including Leokwe and Limpopo Tented Camps, are open and ready to welcome them” he said.
Motorists are advised to drive cautiously and stay within the demarcated roads as the roads are still wet and slippery.
Staff members, who reside at staff houses were highly affected by the floods but are all safe and currently receiving trauma counselling.
“Most of these staff members were traumatised by the experience but we are doing all we can to ensure that they get help and resume with their duties.” concluded Mugwabana.
The Park is open for day visitors everyday between 06h00-18h30 and can be contacted at (015) 534 7923/4.
