Another update, this time for further north.

Dear Valued Stakeholders

Please avoid low water bridges when traveling to and around Shingwedzi Camp; There is a possibility of flooding based on weather focus predictions.

We will keep this group updated with developments as and when they occur.

When I was last in Kruger in August 2015, the private Biyamiti road leading West to the S114 was closed a short distance from the camp. Does anyone know the current status of this road? Thank you.

Hi don,
since I see you live in the USA, maybe you did not get already informed about the weather at the moment in SA and KNP.

The remote camps and gravel roads which will temporarily close are as follows:

* Nyalaland Wilderness Trail
* Olifants Wilderness Trail
* Sirheni Bush Camp
* Bateleur Bush Camp
* All gravel roads in the Park are closed.

Because of rains and storms,this is the situation right now .

Hi don

I was in 'your turf' over Dec/Jan :D

Best to check next week what impact the predicted heavy rains have had on the park. I am sure the road you mention has been open but of course, heavy rain could change that again. When are you visiting the park?

Any chance we can get an update on exactly what roads are still closed after Dineo. There are so many mixed reports about whether all the gravel roads are still shut, it would be really useful to know exactly which ones have been damaged and are still closed.
Many thanks.
