Visitors whom have bookings at the Kabouga Section of Addo Elephant National Park are advised by me to please stay away! Violent protestors (Hooligan's) have set numerous municipal, private property and vehicles alight and have completely blocked both entrances with burning tyres to the town of Kirkwood since early this morning.

You wont be able to reach Mvubu Camp, Kabouga Cottage or the 4x4 trail via Kirkwood town.

And please... it's not called picketing! Google Kirkwood protest.

Contact Kirkwood Police if you need an update at Tel: +27(0)42 230 0813

"Municipal offices, an ANC office, the fire station, fire-trucks as well as the garbage disposal truck had been set alight.

...rubber bullets had been fired at protestors....residents had been asked not to leave their homes."
