Bless the rains down in Africa. Videos of raging rivers in Kruger National Park flood social media.

Heavy rains have fallen in the Kruger National Park and while videos are being shared of the raging rivers… animals are all celebrating some relief too!


South Africa has been dealing with what is being called the worst drought since 1992 with hardly enough rainfall to sustain the country.

Over the past couple of days, the weather has turned with loads of rain starting to fall around some parts of the country.

And the Phalaborwa and Kruger National Park areas have finally had some much needed rain too and it doesn’t look like it is going to slow down any time soon!

More rain is predicted for the next 10 days which means we’re sure to get more amazing photos and videos to share.

Following the much-needed rain, SANParks urged motorists in the park to take extra care on the roads to spare all the animals enjoying the rain.

“Guests of Kruger National Park are requested to drive with caution on all roads of the park,” SANParks public relations assistant Lesley Nyawo requested.

Photos and videos from the park show visitors – and animals – delighting in the downpour that has been falling over the weekend.
