Board of SANParks Dismisses Allegations Against Hotel Developments In KNP

Elephant in the Kruger National Park.


The Board said it is less concerned about labels attached to structures rather than the key and vital issue of managing impacts against the sensitive ecology of the parks.

The Board also dismissed the false and slanderous allegations perpetuated by one Dr Salomon Joubert, a former employee of SANParks. It invited Dr Joubert to take the time to test his allegations and accusations in a properly constituted Court of Law rather than the Trial by Media he is currently conducting.

The Board would like to also announce the confirmation of the appointment of Professor Willem van Riet as the Project Coordinator for both the Malelane Lodge and Skukuza Conference Lodge. Professor van Riet is a former board member of SANParks with extensive experience in conservation, landscaping and development of tourism facilities in ecologically sensitive areas. Amongst his achievements he has also been responsible for the development of the Berg-En-Dal restcamp in the Kruger. Professor van Riet will be responsible for all aspects related to this project and will be reporting to the chief executive officer, Dr David Mabunda.
