Some facilities and gravel roads at the Kruger National Park have been temporarily closed following heavy rains.
SANParks Acting Head of Communications Reynold Thakhuli said the decision to close some roads was for the safety of guests.
“As precautionary measure gravel roads and remote camps mostly in the north of the park have temporarily been closed and guests booked in the flagged camps are being moved to safer camps”, said Thakhuli.
He advised guests to avoid all roads with a ‘No Entry’ signs or blocked with other objects.
“These closures are necessary to ensure visitors’ safety during this time and we would like to advise guests to stick to the tar roads whilst driving inside the Park”, added Thakhuli.
The remote camps and gravel roads which are temporarily closed are as follows:
- Nyalaland Wilderness Trail
- Sirheni Bush Camp
- Bateleur Bush Camp (only accessible via Nkokodzi turn-off)
- Balule Camp
- Talamati Bush Camp
- Pafuri Gate
- Tshokwane and Muzandzeni Picnic Sites
- Sand River low water bridge inaccessible
- All gravel roads in the Nxanatseni (north) Region of the Park from Pafuri to Letaba will be closed; with an exception of Giriyondo gravel road as it will be operational but monitored closely and a few others depending on the developments. Biyamiti is accessible via S25.
