All access gates into the Kruger National Park are open, except Crocodile Bridge, and guests can enter and exit the south of the park from the open gates.
SANParks also advised against travelling on gravel roads and low-water bridges, as there was a high chance of vehicles being washed away.
Hein Grobler, the Kruger National Park’s acting general manager of commercial operations management, said there had been no incidents.
“There are currently four camps that have been badly affected by the floods, namely Lower Sabie, Crocodile Bridge, Biyamiti and Talamati, and they are currently not accessible.”
“Guests arriving at Talamati [on Friday] have been moved to Satara. Management is in constant communication with guests inside these camps about the situation. No threat or danger to lives has been experienced in the park, and we will try our best to continue to keep all our guests in the affected camps safe.”
SANParks said its technical services and park rangers were assessing access and working to find possible solutions.
“The floods remain fluid, with more heavy rains anticipated on Friday. The teams will continue with assessments of all affected camps and roads, and updates will be communicated through social media, as well as in person to the affected guests.”
Meanwhile, the South African Weather Service has warned of more rain along the eastern parts of the country.
