What is the latest update Rich, I have guests due to arrive tomorrow…yikes?! What is the possibility of road transfers in the area?

Hi Amy, the weather has cleared somewhat and the river levels dropped off. The best person to contact regarding road transfers is the Reservations team – reservations(at)londolozi(dot)co(dot)za

The river must look and sound amazing – beware of adventurous crocks – stay safe

We are scheduled to arrive at Londolozi 3 weeks from today. We have booked a charter flight from Nelspruit directly to Londolozi. Are the charters able to fly in? I’m hoping the weather clears up soon.

Hi Joan, 3 weeks is still a long way off to predict the weather patterns, however the weather has already begun to clear up and things are looking positive. I would remain very optimistic that your charter will be able to fly into Londolozi and that you will be able to enjoy your safari experience with us. If you need to contact someone at Londolozi regarding your reservation, you can do so at reservations(at)londolozi(dot)co(dot)za

We are resceduled to fly in 24 Janury for 2 nights.
Do you think that we will get the “Game Viewings” that one expects at Londolozi or is this unlikely due to the floods.
We are also planned to fly in.

Hi Tim,

Good to hear you are rescheduled to fly in on the 24th. I most definitely DO think that you will get the Game Viewing that you expect as game drives are back out on the road and game is being found. The weather has cleared up nicely and the sun is shining at the moment. If you need to talk to anyone regarding your reservation you can contact reservations(at)londolozi(dot)co(dot)za – . rich

Rich, what is the weather doing right now? Just wondering if there is still flooding occurring?
We’re due to arrive Feb. 10th.

Rich Laburn

Hi Joan, the weather is doing fine today, sunny with partly cloud phases. You can find a comprehensive long term weather prediction here: http://www.yr.no/place/South_Africa/Mpumalanga/Kruger_National_Park~986833/

There is no flooding occurring anymore, much of the water has moved downstream.

Everything here is still on track for your arrival on the 10th Feb.

Hi Rich,
I’m arriving on the 4th of February, just wanting an update on the weather there. How is the flooding clearing? Are guest transfers fully functional now?
Is there any indication that the bad weather will be returning?
Thanks
Theresa

Rich Laburn

Hi Theresa, the flood waters have subsided for quite a number of days now and there is no indication of further bad weather returning. Guests are able to get in and out of the lodge with no problem. We will put another update on the blog on Monday morning for your information and consideration. Regards, rich
