Guests planning on spending the day at the Kruger National Park when school holidays start this week have been warned to book early.
William Mbasa, the Kruger National Park spokesman, has mentioned that day visitors who fail to book in advance will be treated on a first come, first serve basis. Once the visitor quota is reached, visitors will be turned away. Necessary arrangements are to be made in advance in order to avoid disappointment.
Day visitors may pre–book by providing a non refundable deposit of R30 per adult and R15 per child. Visitors will still be charged the normal conservation fees upon arrival.
All visitors are to ensure they take their ID documents or alternative form of identity to avoid any issues when arriving.
The Kruger is also making a park and ride facility available at some gates so that if the quota has exceeded for the day, day visitors are still able to visit public picnic areas.
This, however, will cost visitors extra money, but at least it’s better than having to be turned back at the entrance gate.
