Visiting Kruger soon?

#BeAResonsibleTourist #DutyPhoneNumbers

Find the Duty Phone numbers on the reverse side of your Travel Document and at camp receptions. This is the number to call, or message, if there is noise and service related problems in camp.

As we approach a busy season in Kruger, I hope that all heading that way know the emergency numbers. These are on the front of the Travel Document issued at the gate to all visitors. These are the ONLY official numbers to report snares, suspicious behaviour and lawlessness to! DO NOT use third party groups to report to. It delays the process and some reports are never sent to the park.

Thanks DB.
I also think the receptionists at the gates should verbally draw attention to all that information, when they hand over the permit. A lot of people just put it their cubby hole or file and forget about it.

All the rules except the cellphone one makes sense.
There is no logical reason for that rule. Except for Sanparks trying to tell us how and where we may use our personal possessions.


Hi

I would expect that they would wish the use of cellphones be used only for emergencies ( exactly as you state for the gate rules)
and not for chatting on the roads ..

and in the picnic sites as that could be distracting/annoying to other visitors...

You may use your 'personal possessions' in the camps, subject to objectional noise/etc rules...

seems a sensible compromise to me...


As long as the phone is on silent it should have no effect on anyone else so I disagree. I agree to make any noise that would disturb fellow park users but they will not be telling me where and when to use my personal possessions.


Wowsers. Did someone stuff up your braai or something? They are rules to ensure the enjoyment of the park for everyone. Why anyone would want to use their phone while driving out n the bush is beyond me. A gun can be your personal possession and you can't use that whenever you feel like it? If i drove past you and you were parked up talking rubbish on your phone to your cherrie in Pitsonderwater, I would think 'what a tjop!'

Use common sense boet.
