Restaurant closures in the Kruger National Park

Date: 5th March 2014

As you might be aware SANParks, in an effort to improve customer service in the Kruger National Park, is in the process of setting up new restaurant operations at various camps. Major improvements have started and should result in superior product offerings to our customers. It should however be noted that there have been some changes and delays to the initial schedule, mainly as a result of the larger extent of refurbishment to what was expected. A revised schedule is outlined below. 

We apologise for the inconvenience that this may cause and will gladly assist in amending current bookings should these closures cause any difficulty. Please contact us via email at reservations@sanparks.org or telephone +27(0)12 428 9111.

    Planned opening date: Between 13 and 20 March 2014.
