We were in KNP from 23 - 27 December. Late afternoon on the 25th there were dozens of cars heading towards Orpen Gate. During this time, a car passed us with a heavily intoxicated man, hanging out of his vehicle and shouting vile comments at fellow visitors.

Also, whilst in the Orpen camp shop a man bought large amounts of alcohol and not one staff member asked him for his overnight permit. After the man left another guest asked the staff if they ask all visitors who buy liquor if they are staying overnight in the park, the staff answered yes. Even though we saw that that was not the case.

We stayed at Orpen during the 2009 festive season and it was horrible. So compared to other years, the liquor ban has certainly helped.


We were in Tamboti for 25 and 26 December 2012 (first Christmas in the park), we were walking from the pool in Orpen to the shop and then to our car on Christmas Day, we noticed 1 very,very drunk lady (maybe that is not the correct word :roll: ) trying to get out of a taxi because she needed to use the bathrooms, she eventually managed to get out of the vehicle, all her friends were also drunk and they were day visitors because they got back into the taxi, started drinking again, loud music playing and headed towards the exit. The drinking ban has worked because I am sure we would have seen loads more drunk day visitors if the ban was not been enforced especially during peak season.

Well done SANParks, SAPS and SANDF!!

Maybe the message "No alcohol, other than at your accommodation" will now be understood and respected.
