South Africa: Mapungubwe National Park reopens its gates after heavy floods
According to a media release issued by South African National Parks (SANParks), the Mapungubwe National Park in Limpopo, South Africa, has re-opened its doors. The park was closed on Monday, 21 January 2013 due to heavy floods and has now been reopened to the public. Only the museum (the Mapungubwe Interpretive Centre?) is currently still closed, but will reopen later in the week. Although mop-up operations are still underway, all camps in the Mapungubwe National Park, including Leokwe and Limpopo Tented Camps, are open and ready to welcome guests. Motorists in the park are advised to drive cautiously and stay within the demarcated roads as the roads are still wet and slippery. The park is open for day visitors everyday between 06h00-18h30.
