:( :( :(

An optic fibre break (telecom company) about 40km outside Kruger Gate (just outside Hazyview) left Kruger without data comms from 10:15 this morning. According to the telecom company, the cable melted as a result of a veld fire just outside Hazyview. The telecom company spliced/replaced the damaged optic fibre cable.

All comms have been restored now.

Happy camming!

Hi Meg
No, not as far as I know - this veld fire was quite a distance from Kruger's boundary. It was a normal road-side fire that melted the fibre (Telecom company's fibre is an overhead cable running next to the main road).
