Kruger National Park out of petrol

Dec 20 2011 15:27
Johannesburg - The Kruger National Park on Tuesday warned visitors to fill up their petrol tanks before heading to the reserve as it was experiencing a fuel shortage.

Spokesman William Mabasa said there was a shortage of unleaded petrol at most of the park's filling stations.

The situation was a result of a general shortage of fuel in the country which was not only affecting the Kruger National Park but many other filling stations in the region, he said.

"There is still petrol in some of the camps. However, rest camps such as Skukuza, Letaba, Lower Sabie, Pretoriuskop and Shingwedzi have no unleaded petrol at the moment.

"We expect delivery of fuel from the supplier on Wednesday, 21 December and as management, we will work around the clock to ensure that this problem is resolved as quickly as possible," Masaba said.

Mabasa said park management would also like to ensure there was enough fuel for guests during the coming Christmas weekend.

"On behalf of management, we also take this opportunity to apologise to all our guests for the inconveniences which they may have suffered as result of this situation," he said.
