Accommodation facilities in Marakele National Park, Limpopo, have been temporarily closed due to damaged roads caused by heavy rain, SANParks announced this week.

Motswere guest cottage, Tlopi and Bontle tented camps will not be operating until Sunday, March 16.

“We advise all our guests who have made bookings for this week and the weekend to please contact our office since they will not be able to access their accommodation sites,” said Communications Manager for Marakele, Divhani Maremba. “The park is still operational but we advise visitors to stay within the demarcated roads.”

Changes to bookings can be made by contacting central reservations on (012) 428-9111. Alternatively, contact the park on (014) 777 6928/3/1.

SANParks has also advised that heavy rains have been experienced at Mapungubwe National Park, Limpopo, which could result in floods.

The Limpopo River is at full capacity but thus far all the facilities and roads within the park are operational. However, the temporary Wiepe bridge on the R572 road between the park and the town of Musina is flooded and therefore offers no access.
