Kruger Park might ban alcohol - report
Johannesburg - The Kruger National Park is considering a ban on liquor for day visitors, Beeld newspaper reported on Saturday.
SANParks chief executive David Mabunda said the international tourist attraction recently received 130 complaints of drunken driving, animal abuse, disturbing the peace and even skinny dipping in a space of just two weeks.
"There is a lack of respect for the park. People ignore rules and regulations and alcohol abuse is a big problem," said Mabunda.
Although management still needed to make a final decision on the proposal to ban day visitors from taking alcohol into the park, the new rule may be implemented as soon as the Easter weekend, the report said.
