The H12 bridge over the Sabie River.
Image

The debris turned the 400 metre bridge into a dam which flooded across the road. The river would have been more than half a kilometre wide when it left this debris so far into the bush.
Image

The tar was lifted from a section of the H4-1 just after the bridge, and deposited neatly on the verges. You can just see the beginning of that section in the distance here.

The first is as we crossed the Sabie.

Hi Johanclassen

May I ask, your photo of the Balule low level bridge, was it taken from the Balule side of the river, or the Olifants side?

Thanks in advance.

Linda

Hi Linda, Yes "spargish" is correct, its from the Olifants side. The main road is closed an the detour to Olifants is via that gravel road. Cheers....Johan :D

Some of these photos amaze me every time! Just shows one the force of water and nature all together and how small we as people really are!

Thanks for sharing!

We paid a quick visit to KNP at the beginning of February - here are a few pics of the flood damage.
This is at the bridge over the Nwaswitshaka River on the Kruger Gate/Skukuza road, taken on the 6th of February.

Unfortunately the weather was very overcast - not ideal for photography.
