Media Release: Community Project OSV handover
The vehicles are meant to assist previously disadvantaged communities to enter into the OSV business and are donated by VUSWA Fleet.
The project is part of the KNP’s broader strategy of economic empowerment and social responsibility programmes which focuses on communities around the Park.
After selections, prospective tour guides were trained to become fully fledged guides in order to be able to conduct business in the park like any other private OSV operators. As a start, the tour guides will operate from three of the gates i.e. Phabeni, Kruger and Numbi during the park’s normal gate operating times and SANParks will assist the project beneficiaries with marketing of this service.
VUSWA has made two more (on top of the four handed-over) vehicles available to the new OSV operators, should there be a need. This project could overtime extend to the other areas around the KNP if interested community members from other parts of the park have been identified.
