Media Release: Strikers March to Paul Kruger Gate

16 February 2012

Guests to the Kruger National Park (KNP) that have planned to enter through Paul Kruger Entrance Gate tomorrow (Friday, February 17, 2012) should be aware that there could be a disruption of services at the gate due to a planned march by striking workers.

The march, which is scheduled to start at 10:00, will probably cause delays at the gate and could perhaps frustrate visitors that plan to use this gate at that time.

“We we would like to advise visitors to either arrive earlier at Paul Kruger Entrance Gate or use alternative gates like Phabeni Entrance Gate,” said KNP HOD of Communication and Public Relations, Mr William Mabasa.

Mr Mabasa apologises to guests who are planning to use the Paul Kruger Entrance Gate tomorrow for the possible inconveniences.

The march will not affect any of the KNP’s other entrance gates, which include Crocodile Bridge, Malelane, Numbi, Phabeni, Orpen, Phalaborwa, Punda Maria, Pafuri and Giriyondo.
