Good Day. I hear from a friend near Askham that they had between 10 and 44 mm of rain. FANTASTIC news indeed. How about the Park? Any news please??

When carolv and I were there in January we experienced a lot of rain which resulted in some deep puddles in the roads. I think these have probably dried up by now though.

Here are a few of the images:

Hi. We were there for 10 days .. Left yesterday. There has been good rain but most free water has dried up. South of park looks drier than the Nossop and Mata Mata. Animals in good condition and quite a bit of green grass. Sorry no facts and figures ... just what I saw!
The grass is always greener - where you water it!
