Greetings from a beautiful and wet Numbi Gate, we measured 62mm for the area for the period Tuesday morning the 4th at 07h00 ending Friday the 7th at 07h00. We already spotted green shoots coming from the severely burned areas, not much road damage and good sightings.

For those who are interested... I visited the park 3 weeks ago, and it was extremely dry- then we had good rains early in September (about 120mm in Hazyview).. last Saturday I saw new green shoots coming through- and then this afternoon (raining again) I couldn't believe the transformation- especially where the bush had been burnt.. it is beautiful. I was around Pretoriouskop/Phabeni/Skukuza. Nothing more beautiful than the new green growth! :D

Dear All,

I have a great interest in this topic and suggest that we should be factual, as far as possible.
To refer to the good rains the south of the Park has received of late as "floods", would in my view be an exaggeration.
The south of the Park has had good rains with heavy falls in areas, resulting in amongst others the causeway overflowing on the road from Skukuza to Tshokwane.
The north has had less rain although there have been good falls of late.
No floods at this stage.

Kind regards.

Good day everybody.
It was raining softly the whole of yesterday here in Pretoria, how wonderfull. I couldnt stop thinking of the Kruger and wonder if the park has received any rain this weekend?
Espescially the Northern parts?

Noticed today that the Crocodile River has risen. The islands below the Malelane bridge have almost disappeared, showing that there has been a lot of rain up-country too. No danger to the bridges here or at Croc Bridge though.....

It looks like it will be raining the whole week in most areas of the park. At Satara it has been raining since the early hours and it is still pouring.
