Roads closed in Kruger:
From current information received, the following roads are closed due to heavy rainfall:

S25 between H3 and S139 (due to Mlambane causeway flooding)
S114 between H2-2 and S23 (due to Biyamiti causeway flooding)
S30
H1-2 between H4-1 and H12 (due to Sand and Sabie River causeways flooding)
Please advise of any problems encountered. With it still raining the situation changes constantly.
Guests are warned to be careful when travelling on wet gravel roads and not to cross submerged bridges or causeways.

Any updated information on whether Biyamiti Weir is still inaccessible? Also is the Mlambane bridge on the S25 still closed?
