Hi Naomi! I asked WildJohn the same question. Guess his out there working. Lucky thing :mrgreen:
E-mailed Nomonde at Map's reception yesterday.
Last week they had a bit of rain but nothing thereafter up to midday yesterday. It's been so hot that that bit of rain had no effect :(

I see that Mapungubwe has about 70mm rain forecast for tomorrow. And I am sure that a similar amount has fallen today. :D 8)

It seems there was good rain all around Limpopo and Mpumalanga , at Punda Maria as well as a few other areas in KNP , unfortunately the official figures take some time to be posted on the website !

Just heard that the Limpopo is coming down in flood right now. Apparently its bank to bank and rising 8)
I was also told that Mapungubwe is like a green carpet now as well. Wish I was there.

Same here!! :D

Was a toss up between Mpungubwe and Kruger this year but as our trusty old Land Cruiser is not 100% at this moment the decision was made for us.
But this is really good news and I would love to go there again.

Thanx Dave! :thumbs_up:

Looks like a big part of Kruger got rain, but does anyone know if it rained in Mapungubwe as well?

Has been a while since anyone posted on this thread!

We have added a four night stay at Mazhou to our KNP trip in December and I would love to know if Mapungubwe has had any good rains yet. On our previouse visit a couple of years ago it was an absolute paradise!

:D
