Decks to be Renewed at Satara and Tambotie

Kruger Park News Archive

Ten decks at Satara Rest Camp and Tamboti Tented Camp are in the process of being rejuvenated. Saligna wood impregnated with Tanalith E is being used for the decks. The tanalith is applied usimg a vacuum process, and protects the wood from insects and fungal attack, which would cause the wood to deteriorate rapidly.

Tanalith E is considered to be an eco-friendly wood preservative. Komkor Kombuise has subcontracted Tzantim to do the work. Once the wood has been installed it will be stained dark brown and coated with a wax-based sealant that will repel water and prevent the wood from cracking, further extending the decks' lifespan.
