Kruger Drought/Dry Seasons and Dam Levels 2015-18

Post by Richprins » Fri Mar 27, 2015 11:13 am

More and more people are remarking how dry many areas of the park are already, and we should actually still be having rain! Some predict a harsh dry season!

How about putting updates and pics here regarding water levels and veld condition?

For example, a colleague of mine was in the very dry Berg & Dal region this weekend, and the Matjulu waterhole was dry. This may be a maintenance issue, though.

Even Christa from Shingwedzi said it would be a very dry season this year. The Letaba river is very very low already.
