Ezemvelo KZN looking at partnership to rebuild Royal Natal hotel

2013-09-09 00:00

EZEMVELO KZN Wildlife wants to enter into a public-private partnership that would see the dilapidated Royal Natal National Park Hotel restored to its former glory.

“We want someone to rebuild the hotel. We don’t have money to rebuild it, so we are seeking a partnership with the private sector,” the conservation body’s chief executive officer Bandile Mkhize said.

Mkhize said companies had already been asked to show interest in rebuilding and running the hotel for a particular period of time before handing it back to the conservation body.

“We asked companies that we feel have got muscles to come to the fore. The next step … is to develop a request for proposals,” he said.

“What I want to make clear is that we won’t limit ourselves to those people who expressed an interest. You might find that there might be people who did not see the advertisement for the expression of interest,” he said.
