Samevloeing at the confluence of the Nossob and the Aoub rivers:

28/03/2013 - After three days with good spells of rain:

We left the park on the 30th March 2013 and there had been another
fierce thunderstorm on the evening of the 29th with lots of heavy rain
and more spells of good rain throughout the night. The Auob river looked
like it was flowing in places. Alas, I don't have photos as the light was
low with thick clouds that promised to bring even more rain. 8)

Have also returned from KTP? We were up at Nossob and had to move our booking from Bitterpan to KTC, due to the teeming rain and flooded conditions. 10 Kim's from KTC we could not get through the road totally flooded with run off from Dunes. Will see if I can manage to post some pics. Very disappointed about not getting to Bitterpan

Sorry for your disappointment Debbyhug! :( Maybe you will still be able to go to Bitterpan when the water has subsided? :hmz:
