Media Release: Foreign tourists involved in an accident in the KNP
“It is not yet clear why the elephant turned aggressive, however we would like to appeal to the public to always be on the look-out for these huge animals and try not to get too close whenever they see one approaching on the road; said the KNP’s Head of Communications and Marketing, William Mabasa.
The tourists slept over at Punda Maria Camp last night and were scheduled to sleep-over at Mopani Camp today.
The injured driver was taken to Clinix Phalaborwa Private Hospital for further assistance.
Management is busy verifying the tourists' details on the system in order to contact the Tourism Safety Initiative (TSI), Embassy etc; to further assist with all the other logistics pertaining to accidents in a foreign country.
