South African National Parks (SANParks) wishes to dismiss rumours that are spreading about the closure of Mapungubwe restaurant, which is situated in the Mapungubwe National Park and World Heritage site, near Musina in Limpopo. The restaurant has merely changed operators and was not closed down.

This is according to Park Manager, Fhatuwani Mugwabana, who said the concession which has been running the restaurant since 2012 indicated that they would not be continuing with the operation post June 2013.

“It is just a change in the operators, but the restaurant operations have not been compromised, and we would like to assure all our visitors that they can still get service in the restaurant.” said Mugwabana. 

The restaurant’s operating hours are from 08h00 to 16h00, daily.
