Summer rains hammer the Kruger area

Posted on

Devastating rains have hammered the Mpumalanga and eastern Limpopo provinces in South Africa causing some of the famous wildlife reserves bordering the Kruger National Park to close. Reports indicate that some 234mm fell in a 24 hour period over 17/18 January. Rivers are swollen to extreme proportions and some lodges are reporting flooding. The last time such extreme weather hit the region was at the turn of the century in 2000.
