Published on : Saturday, February 2, 2013

Shingwedzi Rest Camp in the northern part of the Kruger National Park was severely damaged by flood waters and will be closed until further notice. Ten of the 15 huts at Sirheni bush camp are also badly damaged, but the remaining five are expected to reopen to tourists soon.

Other Kruger bush camps that are closed are: Balule, Bateleur, Maroela, Shimuwini, Talamati, Tamboti, and Tsendze.

Pafuri gate and the Pafuri border facility are also still closed because of roads that washed away. Reconstruction of these roads is currently underway.

Also closed are several picnic and viewing spots. These are: Crooks Corner, Kanniedood Hide, Makhadzi, Matambeni Hide, Muzandzeni, Nhlanguleni, Nyawutsi Hide, Orpen Dam, Shibatsangela, and Tshokwane.

Tarred roads still closed are: the section of the Skukuza to Pretoriuskop road near the Transport Dam, parts of the road to Pafuri gate, and parts of the road between Orpen gate and Satara Rest Camp. Several gravel roads are also closed.

Reynold Thakhuli, SANParks GM: media liaison, said all damaged camps, roads, picnic and viewing spots are receiving attention. ‘We expect some of these facilities to reopen by the end of February, or the first week in March,’ he said.

Meanwhile most accommodation and camps have reopened in the Manpungubwe National Park, except for Tshugulu Lodge and Vhembe Wilderness Camp. Both will be closed until further notice.
