Crooks corner is definately an amzing drive in the Kruger :D
Great pics Elsa and Okie :clap:
Our car got stuck in the mud on this route and I had to be the driver while my father put sticks under the tyre! I was about 9 years old :shock: :shock:

When the car got out the ditch I sprayed mud in my fathers face and didn't stop driving :lol: :lol: :lol:
I was so focusd on my job I didn't listen to my mom telling me to stop :lol:

We didn't see another car for the whole ordeal!

I would imagine that at the moment, SL, no it won't.

However, once the water recedes and they make the road safe again it will be fine for your car, and well worth the effort to get up there. Pafuri picnic spot is a magical place. Hopefully the river road won't have been too badly damaged - it was once the most beautiful road in the park but I fear for the trees.

However Crooks Corner will still be the same. Its amazing to stand on the very edge of the country and look over into another two countries.
