Rain in Addo

Unread post by jacquimiles » Fri Feb 24, 2017 1:55 pm

Could some one confirm whether Addo has received considerable rain in the month of February 2017.
There have been comments made that the waterholes are full. We were there at the beginning of February and most were dry. :cry:
So if this is true it will be wonderful.

There has been quite good rain in the Park over the past few weeks, yes. How much exactly I couldn't say. The dams are looking good and the veld has changed into a lush green. It was most welcome after a very dry summer.
