We are coming up to Kgalagadi at the end of January and would like to know what rain has fallen in this rainy season and what condition the park is in. :)

Hi there jchalmers,

Welcome to the forum and hope you will have a great time here.

Regarding your questions.

We have had some good widespread rain all over the park in the last three weeks, the roads are in good condition, bit corrugated but that is due to the amount of traffic on the roads, we will start reaching the high of our rainy season during the month of January and beginning February. You will experience some stunning thunderstorms.

All over the park the sightings are great. Plenty births and kills have been witnessed by guests and the veld is turning green very quick.

We look forward in having you here in the park and hope you also experience some great sightings


KG

Thanks Jan for your very speedy reply and for answering my questions. We are certainly looking forward to our trip to your park. As we have not been there during the rainy season before we cannot wait to experience it.
