Kruger National Park all day visits need to be pre-booked
DURING the school holidays, from July 1-23, access for visitors to the Kruger National Park will adhere to daily quotas, to manage the park’s carrying capacity.
SANParks reminds day visitors to the park that daily quotas will once again apply at all entrance gates. Visitors are urged to book for their visit prior to their arrival.
Pre-booking for day visits applies to the general public and tour operators, with tariffs charged per person, however when using an open vehicle, one must apply for permit direct from KNP.
The day visitor quota is a management tool to maintain the carrying capacity of the park, and is permanently in place throughout the year, although emphasised during long weekends and holidays due to the volume of visitors during these times.
