Definitely significant progress from when we were there in early Jan; looking good and will be over the moon to use the new bridge. May would be marvellous, meaning we could move our booking forward. :dance: :dance:

Was hoping that they would build this bridge higher as we all know the Olifants river can increase very quickly and very often.

Why spend money on something if we all know it won't work :roll:

Somebody has written on facebook that the low level bridge at Balule is going to reopen on 7 May 2015. If this is correct, I will be over the moon, as we are booked in at Balule on 8 May 2015 for 3 nights. :clap: :clap: :clap:

I plan to visit the KNP during July 2015 and spend some time around Olifants and Balule camp areas. Question: Bridge near Balule, crossing the Olifants river - has this been repaired and open for traffic yet?

Any news on this will be appreciated
