I for one also happen to know that if a staff member want to drive at night, he/she does need to get the right permit to do so from the section ranger. Or in the northern part it works like that. If its not work related that is.

So its not a case of "I want to go to my family outside the park and will return when I want to even if its 2am in the morning and now i can do what I want.."

He/ She will need to have a permit to show, otherwise they will sleep outside the park or be fined( and they do get fined) if caught without the permit while driving at night.

Let me try to help. Staff are allowed to travel 24 hours per day in most camps to the nearest gate. Reason for this is because some staff stay outside knp and some work in restaurants that work untill late at night, whom might be off the next day or three, so naturally they want to go home on the same night. Another reason is that ranger staff also need to start patrolling during nighttime, etc. You can, however only travel when your vehicle has a valid permit on it.

Gerhard, this is correct when there is no closeby gate, like ls. Otherwise they are permitted to drive at night

Sho, good to see that wacktazz is around to clear things up. It doesnt take much for a thread to snowball into a threat on this forum. Next thing you see is night drives being organised by individuals because they dont understand why its necessary for the staff in a game reserve that hosts thousands of people a year to travel after dark.

:twisted:

What strikes me most here is that after two months of dicussion/debate over the issue, no simple formal statement or answer from a KNP or camp official is forthcoming to clarify the issue in any way.

Surely a reasonably simple concise statement explaining what is/is not allowed under certain circumstances would avoid any assumptions or speculation made. If there are exceptions and concessions granted to staff or outside contractors then why can't these be simply and plainly stated.

Then genuine abuses of the conditions can be reported and acted upon and someone quietly and genuinely going home or out on legitimate business from a camp after hours within the rules can do so without being accused of being a rule-breaker.

Or am I w-a-y oversimplifying things....?
