I see that Karoo National Park has won SANParks awards for the best reception and gate staff. See http://www.sanparks.org/about/news/default.php?id=1546
Well done to all of you wonderful Karoo people and I'd like to add a personal hooray for the gate staff. They are really the chirpiest, happiest, friendliest and most helpful of all the parks we've been to and that makes for a stunning welcome to the Karoo. Thanks guys!

Well done Karoo NP. :clap:

It is well deserved. The staff are definitely well trained in people skills there, as we noticed, plus the indigenous sense of humour helps a lot.

Keep it up. :thumbs_up:

Daniël Hollander (Gate keeper) - Jou Doring (Eng: "You're a brick"). I know Daniël has other colleagues at the gate too (he does not work on weekends), but in my opinion he is without doubt the main peanut in the packet. Congratulations to all of them!!

And also to Lorraine and the rest of the team at Reception. All of you are stars.

Well done Brian van der Westhuizen and team. That's why I keep on going back to Karoo (43 visits).

I will never forget my first entrance to the park in 1990 - when I was greeted by the ever-friendly Popeye, gate keeper at that time. First impressions are surely very important. And the gatekeepers at Karoo certainly realise that.

Congrats - :thumbs_up: and very well deserved - In our many visits to Karoo we have always been greeted with a smile and a friendly face and they have always gone the extra mile if we have needed assistance.
:clap:

Well done to the Karoo NP staff for their awards. :clap: :clap: :clap:

When we visited for the first time last year we also thought they were the friendliest camp staff we had encountered. In fact we are just about to book to go back again next year.

These awards must be a good incentive for staff to 'shine' their hospitality skills and those that win should be very proud!

Regards,
DASSIE DELIGHT & PEREGRINE FALCON
