    Thanks Riaan, but the parks are still open hey, this is just if you don't want to go anymore or can't go?

    Guys just some feedback here - I had a booking for Mkuze Game Park this weekend which I (obviously had to) cancelled this morning. KZN Wildlife gives you a refund or you can re-book now, but you can then change that booking from 17 April at no extra cost.

    They only take bookings for occupation from 1 May 2020 onwards though.

    we also had a booking for Mpila next week....sent one email & chop chop booking was changed to May! We now also
    have a credit as the new booking is out of the school holidays!! (I think that's why)

    Cheers

    Correct about the credit Graeme, because we both obviously booked in high season and May is low. The credit is also indicated on the new booking form that you'll get.

    Some further feedback on the KZN parks bookings - I had re-booked before the lockdown for this past weekend, so enquired about the further credit just before last weekend. Nobody came back to me but I then received an email yesterday to say that I can give them my new dates. I then replied to ask from when I could book, but am still waiting on that answer.

    Does anybody have an idea from when the parks will be open?

    I don't think government knows when it'll allow parks to open. Remember, all tourism still forbidden. I'm not sure if daily visitors will be allowed sooner but lodges remain closed?

    Thanks Leeubok if anybody will know it will be you. Maybe it was just a random employee sending a courtesy email. As said, when I asked the person from when I could book all went quiet...maybe he/she did not think that one through.

    Thanks Riaan, lucky her!

    Just note for anybody only the 2 gates off the N2 are open, the one at the Ulundi side is not open.

    Agree andrewdjulyan.

    We drove up to Hluhluwe-iMfolozi on Saturday morning, left Durban at 03h30 and was at the bottom gate just after 6am. Quite a few cars there already, I would say about 15 in total by the time we went in. You fill in a checklist at the door and they take your temperature and then the usual entry process, the whole thing went quite smoothly.

    We did most of iMfolozi Park (only) and stopped at the Sontuli-loop picnic site for a quick braai. It was heaven. The place was quite full by the time we got there, lots of cars, but managed to found a braai spot - it was so good just to sit in the bush, hear the bird sounds and smell the sekelbos fire again, it just smells different in the bush and a tjoppie & beer just taste better. Lots of happy people and children sounds too. Continued the loop afterwards and left the park again just after 4pm.

    We did not see a lot of animals and very few birds of prey, it was as if the game was also scared of the humans. Saw a couple of elephant, nice herd of buffalo, quite a few rhinos and then the usual, impala, wildebeest and zebra. Did not even see giraffe.

    A wonderful outing nonetheless, can't wait to go stay there again, frankly I cannot see why the parks are not open for overnight visitors.

    Some pics of the spots the regulars will recognise.

    Of course I also had a tyre inspector, checking that I was deflating correctly and like a good spietkop ready for a hand-out.
