(The other mods are going to give me a fat smack for not posting on the existing topic ... sorry moddies :redface: )


As I sit here at Skukuza, soft rain is falling after a bit of a thunder storm in the distance. It started to rain at Balule this morning, and by the time we got to Satara, it was raining really nicely with lots of puddles in the road.

We received some rainfall in the past couple of weeks and this is how Shingwedzi River looks like.

Morning all..

Can anyone tell me more or less how much rain did the northern part of the park, (say from Olifants north) receive. We here in Centurion had buckets full of rain the last few weeks, and was wondering whether the park has gotten some heavy rain too. We're leaving Monday morning for Kruger, and camping in Shingwedzi from Tuesday to Sunday. Hope January 2013 wont repeat itself again. Maybe I must remember to pack my blowup boat.

Million dollar question, was in the Shingwedzi area in December 2010 around 16th, it was so wet we could not drive on all the roads for first couple of days. It has been around 40 celsius in the Phalaborwa area today.

The weather forecast does not always get it right but cloudy for some parts and rain towards weekend.

So enjoy and see you.

Very little rain in Phala for quite a few days now, though plenty of water about, from previous rainfall. :dance:
