I wonder how long it will take to repair the damage there. I'm booked in there in March and really hope it will be fixed up by then!

Yip, I've seen the photos, that's why I'm praying so much haha! It's such a bummer, because it's one of the camps I've never stayed at before and I really wanted to get there. I'm still holding out hope!

I would suggest looking at another camp and changing booking early!
There are many years to come where you can stay at Shing :D

Hi Everyone.

I have been crying since yesterday, and every time I see those pics, I get tears in my eyes :cry: :cry: :cry: . Shingwedzi is like my home, The number of times I have stayed at Shingwedzi and visited Shingwedzi is unbelievable. I hope the animals are alright, including the Shingwedzi Pride :pray: :pray: :pray: who mostly sit inside the dry river banks of the Shingwedzi River :cry:

I feel soo helpless sitting in the UK, just going through the pics and crying. I really hope the camp gets repaired asap :pray: and that all animals are safe :pray:

Does any of the V's know how badly is the Mphongolo Loop been affected.

Kallis ...

You have nothing to fear. The animals have superb instincts and know long before we can, that there will be a flood, and move to a safe area. Don't worry about it man! Seriously, floods are PART of nature. Animals live in harmony with floods. This is just part of their loves and they know well how to live with it! The floods will only have good effect on the animals.

It is just our man made stuff which is not OK. Shingwedzi will take quite long to repair I am guessing :hmz:
