Daily Quota at Kruger National Park Applies
Are you planning on visiting Kruger National Park this December?
As visitor management is a vital part of ensuring visitors have the best possible experience when visiting the Kruger National Park (KNP) over the festive season starting December 13, South African National Parks (SANParks) has alerted all day visitors that daily quotas will once again apply at the entrance gates.
Visitors are urged to make pre-bookings for their visits prior to their arrival. There are three-time slots available which visitors can choose from:
- Time slot one: 05h30 to 07h30.
- Time slot two: 07h30 to 09h30.
- Time slot three: 09h30 onwards.
Pre-booked day visitors will get preference over non-booked day visitors at the gate, but must ensure that they arrive within their booked time slots. Arriving outside the booked time slot will be regarded as non-booked, and therefore will not receive preference and risk the possibility of being turned away. These bookings can be changed as well through SANParks Reservations offices if need be.
“Day visitors may not bring liquor as a result of the alcohol ban in public areas of the Park,” said Ike Phaahla, KNP’s gm: Communications and Marketing.
“We also advise guests to exercise caution when driving around areas undergoing construction such as Skukuza Camp so as to avoid unnecessary accidents”, concluded Phaahla.
Other important information visitors should take note of include:
- Day visitor pre-bookings are subject to a non-refundable fee of R43 per adult and R22 per child.
- Day visitors who have pre-booked will still be required to pay Conservation Fees. For international guests, standard conservation fees of R372 are applicable for adults and R186 for children.
- The number and profile of persons (adults and children) on the reservation and actual persons arriving should correspond.
- All guests (drivers and passengers) will be required to identify themselves upon admission (SA driver’s license, ID or passport).
- Due to existing contractual arrangements with Open Safari Vehicles (OSVs), they have paid for the annual operating permit and are authorised to enter external gates 15 minutes before opening time to ensure fair distribution/flow of traffic.
- Gate quotes will be strictly applied and guests without pre-bookings could be denied entry.
