Hi, I`d like to donate a bench to the Kruger Park in honor of my grandparents. How does one go about doing this?
Please help!

Thank you Lesego,I've been trying to get an answer from Gerson for the last months :wall:
I will e.mail Lucy and I hope I will be "luckier"
Our Memorial bench project is still important for us.
I was interested in Pafuri picnic spot (maybe not the best period or it could help to repair the place after the flood)
Anyway thanks for the information :thumbs_up:

Dear Petra,

Please be informed that to donate a bench in the park an amount of R3850.00 is to be settled. This amount covers the bench, a plaque and maintenance for a period of three years. It takes two months for a bench to be erected after the full amount is settled. Also note that the size for the plaque is 150mmx80mm and you can put anything on the plaque except saying IN THE MEMORY OF????
