Day visitors to the Kruger National Park, take note of the daily quotas that will apply at entrance gates during the 2016 holiday season.

Quotas will apply from 15 December 2016 to 3 January 2017. Visitors are urged to make pre-bookings prior to their arrival.

Choose from three time slots

  • 05:30 to 07:30
  • 07:30 to 09:30
  • 09:30 onwards

Visitors will be able to book up to 80% of day visitor quota per gate via the SANParks Reservations Office and online. Pre-booked day visitors will get preference over non-booked day visitors at the gates.

Good to know

Pre-booked day visitors must ensure that they arrive within the time slots as per their reservation. Arriving outside the booked time slot, will be regarded as a non-booking and these visitors will thus not receive preference.

“For busy periods such as the festive season, we aim to better manage the volumes that we expect, as well as our visitors’ expectations. The three different time slots are aimed at improving the spread of vehicles and, as far as possible, prevent unnecessary waiting periods at the gates,” says SANParks Acting Head of Communications, William Mabasa.

“Please do not bring liquor with you because the alcohol ban on public areas in the park is a permanent rule which is enforced at all times. Other park rules must also be adhered to at all times whilst in the park with special emphasis on adherence to speed limit and no littering.”
