update (06 March 2017): The road to the "Confluence" as well as the "Tree Top Walk" in the Mapungubwe National Park has been opened following closure due to rain last week.

Due to heavy rains over the last weekend (25/26 Feb 2017), Mapungubwe National Park is currently experiencing high water levels in some areas. As a result, the road to the "Tree Top Walk" and the "Confluence" has been temporarily closed to the public. The rest of Mapungubwe National Park is fully operational.
