Thanks for your reply, but my questions was more directed to SANParks who does not employ personnel on a voluntary base to update there website and issue media releases. I noted your website is separate from SANParks and it is therefore that I've asked the question on why does events organised by the Honorary rangers not get advertise on SANParks website.
When I plan or make bookings at national parks I do not login on the HR website but under http://www.samparks.org
The owner or manager of the land where an organisation wants to hold an event should in some way inform their clients of such an event. An example is the Cavern Hotel who informs you on their website of upcoming events on their land or in the area such as Royal Drakensberg Mountain Bike Challenge from 5 - 7 April. This event is not organised by them, but because it runs over their property and a few others land owners potential visitors to their hotel are informed.
This is also not something new for SANParks, because a few years back events were announced through a media release a few months or at least weeks before the event. Lately I am missing those releases and were therefore not aware of cycling in Mokala, birding in Cambedoo, Karoo and Tankwa and marathon in Marekele. See the link below on how it was done before unless I am just browsing on the wrong pages.http://www.sanparks.org/parks/karoo/new ... rjf0vc46a4
Maybe Lesego can implement these announcements again and we all can be aware on when to start practising for the next cycling or running event in a national park.
