Just come from there - dry! There are some pools of water around though.

We were also at Shingwedzi, last week of Sept - and the river is extremely dry. A pic of the causeway:

And Kanniedood Dam... the name is a bit misleading if you see it as we did! :?

After being closed for so long following the terrible floods of last year, Good news!

Shingwedzi's causeway was opened on 14 May. It had been closed to allow the water level to subside and then to scrape sand off the roadway. Staff did tell us that if the water level rose above a certain level it would close again - so it should be open for a few more months at least (rain permitting :twisted: )

Hi Bushbuddies,

This is the view we had end April 2014. The trees are still standing, but lots of sand around the causeway making it less of a risk to drive off the bridge. :wink:
