Guests of Kruger National Park were informed by the Kruger National Park representatives that Paul Kruger Gate is inaccessible due to protests taking place at communities outside the gate (approximately 20 km away from the Park) on the R536.
SANParks spokesperson William Mabasa advised guests to use alternative gates such as Phabeni (which is about 10 km away from Hazyview on the R536) to enter or exit the Park until further notice. "The situation is being monitored closely", Mabaso added.
This is not the first time the park has been affected by community protests, earlier this month, Kruger National Park's Punda Maria Gate was inaccessible due to service delivery protests taking place at a village outside the gate on the R524.
In March, two gates were blocked due to protests against poor service delivery in the area.
