Hello everyone!

In 16 days' time we will be heading to Mapungubwe - and we're very excited! :dance:

Can someone please tell me if there are any new (official) updates on the roads, the tree top walk, the Maloutswa hide, etc. We heard that the road between Mussina and MNP still hasn't been fixed, though.
We will be camping for four nights and would like to plan our stay to make the most of it.

Thanks so much! :D

You can see the flood like on the tree.

Check the debre (not sure of the spelling. aka washed up grass and branches) in the tree behind the bakkie.
