    Looks like good rain reported between Nossob and Twee Rivieren Dec. 29.

    Some roads flooded.

    Still more rain for Kgalagadi - bush is now green in parts with some flowers!

    Glad it is finally raining.I was there from mind-Nov to mid-Dec and it was the most dry I have ever seen.

    Does anyone know if the amount of rain is enough?

    Rainy season has just begun. They will need a lot more to restore grazing. Water holes generally are not the problem - grazing is the key issue with it being wiped out in some areas on the SA side.

    We were there in September and I was surprised to see how much game was still around in spite of the worst drought in 100 years. Mata side was particularly bad.
