    Only for self-drives in some game parks nothing else. No overnight stays allowed.

    Media Release: National parks yet to open accommodation facilities

    19 June 2020
    South African National Parks (SANParks) said in a statement it is preparing for a recall of its hospitality staff and for a phased-in approach in the reopening of its overnight facilities in the wake of an announcement by President Cyril Ramaphosa that accommodation providers can resume operations in alert level 3.
    This is according to SANParks CEO, Fundisile Mketeni, who said the President's address on Wednesday, 17 June 2020 brings good news to SANParks and many nature lovers who for the past three months have been yearning to visit their favourite national park. "However we urge those who cannot wait to book into our accommodation to exercise a bit of patience as SANParks readies itself for the reopening".
    He said SANParks will approach the opening of its accommodation facilities responsibly to ensure that the gains made by South Africa in curbing the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic are not compromised.
    Mketeni said the process of recalling back staff in preparation for the reopening is still to commence... "we will then immediately activate the re-training of staff on new operating protocols in line with industry standards. The safety of both staff and guests is critical and we have to ensure that we are in compliance with regard to regulations as well as health standards and protocols. We will announce the dates for the reopening of accommodation bookings in the next few days".
    One of the stupid mistakes in life is to underestimate peoples level of stupidity!

    Seems like overnight stays will be open if you travel within your own province.

    Please see below:

    http://www.tourismupdate.co.za/artic...vel-IS-allowed

    as well as the Government Gazette:

    Section 39 (e) accommodation establishments not formally accredited and licensed,such as private homes for paid leisure accommodation; - are still not allowed to be open. This seems to indicate that hotels, lodges, etc may accept overnight stays from people within their own province.

    Taxis will be a much bigger killer. If you can, just do it. Lockdown is over for everyone but the suburb dwelling middle class anyway.

    I emailed a private game reserve campsite to get their response, and this is what they said:

    "Thank you for your email. We are officially only open for business travelers and self drive day visits. Although I believe if you came up you would be assisting my Anti poaching unit with patrols and also assisting with Game Counts ...correct?"

    Love it!

    Mates of mine have been assisting with plenty of things, including culling, across provincial borders - right through lockdown.

    If you want to make the effort and the campsite as well, you can do what you want to.

    I donít think the issue is if accommodation is open, but rather how do do travel cross border with your family without being harassed at a roadblock.

    so recreational commercial flights are allowed from 1 July but discouraged; inter-provincial travel for leisure not allowed.

    So I guess I can book a flight for fun from Lanseria to OR Tambo.

    Idiots.
