We will be in the Kruger until 04 January 2014, is it safe to say that if it starts raining we should pack up and go??? I have been reading through the threads from 2012 and 2013 floods just to get an idea when the rains start and I think we will be leaving just as the rains are about to start :? :? :doh: :doh: :doh:

Visiting Kruger in January after the holiday season has ended is good. The Park is peaceful and quiet at that time :thumbs_up: .

Some of our best sightings were when the cyclone hit and the following year with the floods! Biggest problem is road closures and I must be honest that on one or two occasions we slid all over the dirt roads and we do not have a 4 x 4 but somehow got through.

Experienced the 2012 floods. The parks board will normally start closing roads if they become flooded and as was the case with Shingwedzi evacuate the camp to higher ground. Always obey the parks board officials and if you see a problem report it to the nearest camp.

After a busy holiday season, it must surely be getting quieter now with "back to school" this week!
How have your sightings been?
