Marakele: Swimming pool

Unread post by lion queen »

Marakele National Park gets a swimming pool.

Thanks to generous sponsorship from Coca Cola Beverages South Africa (CCBSA) for the Powerade Marakele Marathon, SANParks Honorary Rangers commissioned the building of a pool and jungle gym in the Bontle camping ground in the Marakele National Park.

The official opening of the swimming pool took place after the 2023 Powerade Marakele Marathon on 4 March 2023 and was welcomed by enthusiastic campers, families and runners. Mr James Ngesi, CCBSA Regional GM-Commercial handed over the new swimming Pool to SANParks’s Koketso Kotsoe, Park Manager of the Marakele National Park. The pool will be made available to all overnight visitors.

CCBSA’s committed sponsorship to the Powerade Marakele Marathon over the next four years will see ongoing support, not just for the Marathon, but also for projects prioritised by South African National Parks (SANParks).

As a relatively young park with a Big Five offering, the pool will go a long way to make overnight stays in the Marakele National Park more comfortable for the whole family, especially during the extended hot summer months.
