Rain storms can have some severe effects and at times, be really scary. I hope there isn't going to be too many like these when people decide to take a trip around the area.

Thanks,

Kian, good to see this. I am a relatively frequent visitor to iSimangaliso, and I want to come soon to see the response of birdlife in particular. I hope that the rain will help with the salinity issues of Lake St Lucia.
