NEW YORK -- South African National Parks (SANP) and South African
Tourism (Satour) announced that Kruger National Park in the
Mpumalanga province is operational again following heavy February
According to a press release, much of the damage to the park's
infrastructure has been repaired and access points such as roads,
bridges and approaches also have been reopened.
The release also said that scientists and rangers at the park
indicated that the heavy rains have had a positive effect on the
park's natural environment.
Silt and vegetation buildups have been cleared along the
riverbanks, and animals have been congregating on the roads to
avoid the muddy terrain, thus increasing game-viewing. Most camps
in the park are fully operational and are currently open.
