The River Is Flowing

“The river is flowing” came the whoops of delight from the guests and staff alike at Tanda Tula last week, as the mighty Nhlaralumi came down in all her force in front of the our safari tents. Raised above the riverbed, the tent decks provided a wonderful viewing spot over the African bush and now flowing river.

After a night of seriously heavy rainfall over the Timbavati the river finally flowed, for the first time this season. Everyone in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve had been waiting with bated breath for months for such rainfall, and what a fantastic sight to see the river flowing in all its glory.

Sadly the flowing river did not last for long, and after a few days the riverbed was once again dry (which is it for most of the year).
