Media Release: KNP opens information office at KMIA

Date: 30th May 2003

The Kruger National Park (KNP) officially opened an information office at Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport (KMIA) today

Situated in the arrivals hall of KMIA, the information officers manning the office will answer any queries concerning the KNP and will be on duty whenever scheduled airliners arrive or depart from South Africa’s newest international airport. 

The office was officially opened today by the KNP Acting Director Mr Josias Chabani, which was witnessed by, amongst others, representatives the Mpumalanga MEC for Economic Affairs and Tourism, Mr Jacob Mabena, various other senior government officials, tourism industry role players and the media. 

Said Mr Chabani, the office is ideally situated to capture the attention of passengers arriving at the airport, whether they are tourists or business people. 

“Tourists that have already booked accommodation or that have planned day trips into the Kruger National Park can find out necessary information like where the closest gate is in relation to where they are staying or can find out about other tourist products like game drives and day walks. 

“Business travellers can stop off at the office and give them information so that they can plan their forthcoming holiday in the Kruger National Park,” said Mr Chabani. 

The information office will be manned by two KNP officials, Lindiwe Mbowane and Patricia Mohlala who will be relieved by various other officials from the tourism, marketing and public relations departments of the Kruger National Park.
