Skukuza - Visitors to the Kruger National Park have been advised to book early this festive season.

Day visitors are also encouraged to book their visits to ensure they're not turned away if gate quotas are exceeded.

“If anyone is planning to visit this festive season, it is recommended that they either arrive at the gate very early in the morning as the service is on first come, first served basis," said Kruger spokesperson William Mabasa.

Mabasa said the daily entry quotas would be strictly enforced throughout the festive season period.

“Each gate has its limited number of day visitors that can be allowed per day. For example, Phalaborwa allows 600 visitors and small ones like Pafuri allow 300 visitors,” said Mabasa.

He said bookings can be done telephonically at 012 428 9111 at a cost of R28 per adult and R16 per child, but would lapse if visitors arrived after 13:00.

Pre-booked visitors will still be expected to queue at the gates and pay conservation fees.

He reminded visitors to bring along their identity documents or alternative forms of identity.

"Wild Cards cannot be used to identify one as a legitimate holder and should be accompanied by some form of identity," said Mabasa.

Field and honorary rangers will be assisting gate staff with managing the queues and providing other services at the gates.

The Kruger has 10 entrance gates - Pafuri, Punda Maria, Phalaborwa, Giriyondo, Orpen, Paul Kruger, Phabeni, Numbi, Crocodile Bridge and Malalane.
