Thanks @Afriphile for the information! Let's hope that nature will find the balance between spending the necessary rain but without causing damages!!

Sky did look quite dark, but possibly the ellies had been busy at the waterhole?
Might be rain coming tomorrow. :thumbs_up:

Had a look on the SA rainfall radar - it's pouring over most of the Kruger at the moment.

I read on one of the Kruger FB groups that they had had 70mm rain at Maroela. The accompanying videos showed streams flowing fast as you would expect.

I don't suppose there has been any rain between Shingwedzi and Parfuri recently?

Hi,

there is a huge depression arriving at Kruger soon. Loads of rain expected within the next four days.

Safe travels everyone!
