As part of SANParks National Parks Week, the Executive Director of the Kruger National Park, Dr Bandile Mkhize opened a wooden boardwalk at the Skukuza Nursery today (Tuesday September 19, 2006).

“Our main contribution to the inaugural National Parks Week will be the launch of this boardwalk facility and, for years to come, it will be remembered that one of the most significant events of this countrywide initiative took place here at the Skukuza Nursery,” said Dr Mkhize in his keynote address.

The new boardwalk, which runs from the parking lot of the nursery for 300 metres through an artificial wetland formed by Lake Panic dam to the front of the nursery, is designed to give guests an opportunity to learn more about wetlands and their associated fauna and flora while visiting the nursery.
 

To blend in with its surroundings, the boardwalk has been built with treated saligna poles and has been designed by the KNP’s Technical Services Department using the environmental best practice of “touching the earth lightly”.
