The final award for this evening and the highlight of the awards ceremony is the Lifetime Contribution Award.
As you know in this world there are exceptional people who are dedicated and committed to their jobs to an extends that it becomes a calling. Those are the people that make organisations reach great heights and execute their mandate efficiently. SANParks recognises those pillars of strength with this award.

Tonight we honour an individual who joined the organisation in 1978 in the Old Kalahari Gemsbok Park. She served the organisation for 38 years before retiring. A person described by colleagues as a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day, highly motivated and a real gem in the hospitality industry. Our recipient took her responsibilities very seriously and left no margin for error. She was referred to as a mother figure in the camp and provided solutions as a leader. She contributed to the past achievements of the Karoo National Parks such as the 2015 Kudu Award for Best Rest Camp. Her past achievements also include Excellent Performance in the workplace. And as she begins her retirement SANParks want her to know that she has set the bar high and that she will be missed in the workplace. Ladies and gentlemen please help me congratulate this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient Anna Kamfer….
Congratulations again to Anna Kamfer we wish you a peaceful retirement.
