Fees bars uit sy nate, koue ten spyt

2015-07-02 06:00

Te midde van bibber-temperature, het besoekers aan die Absa Kirkwood-wildsfees die naweek die bywoningsrekord laat spat.

“Hoewel ons eers later vandeesweek die finale syfers sal hê, is daar ’n aanduiding dat ons met 10% teenoor verlede jaar se 50 000 besoekers gegroei het,” het Jenni Honsbein, feesdirekteur, gesê.

Nie eers beurtkrag op albei feesaande het die gees óf vermaak geblus nie.

“Die kragopwekker het genoeg elektrisiteit aan die verhoog voorsien, terwyl die maan en sterre ’n naglig-atmosfeer aan besoekers verskaf het.”

Geen ernstige beserings of voorvalle is volgens Honsbein deur die loop van die feesnaweek aangemeld nie.

Sy het ook gesê die nuwe feetjiewoud-wandelroete en Tiki-eilandkroeg het baie aandag geniet. Danksy dié sukses word ’n rits nuwighede reeds vir volgende jaar se 15de wildsfees beplan.

Die wildveiling Vrydag het ’n omset van sowat R13 miljoen gelewer, het Johan Swart, veilingorganiseerder, gesê.

Die Addo-olifant Nasionale Park se opbrengs gedurende die wildveiling is sowat R7,4 miljoen.

Meer as 30 buffels is verkoop, waarvan ’n topprys van R750 000 vir ’n bul en R360 000 vir ’n koei en kalf betaal is
