Hi Jannie...it's a cool building, so far as buildings go...and situated on the smallest national park in SA...i'll ask around and see what else I can find out-the boardroom has beautiful stained glass windows...alot of it's just standard govt architecture...but the grounds are the layout are lovely...

It is indeed a small park with a fantastic variety of indigenous trees and the resultant birds. When I have the time, I drive there to make my bookings, for the simple reason that once you drive through the gates, it feels like you entered a small piece of Kruger in the city. The whole experince to go there adds to the excitement of an upcoming Park trip!

Also, the Bushwillow shop there stocks a good variety of field guides at reasonable prices.

I absolutely love going to HQ to pay outstanding fees, etc. Its almost always feels like your driving into the KNP!! The staff are always very helpful and friendly. Woudn't mind swopping jobs with them.
