1 min read

In line with international norms, as well as its vision of “connecting society”, South African National Parks (SANParks) is pleased to announce the opening of the first Muslim Prayer Facility at the Skukuza rest Camp in the Kruger National Park (KNP), which took place today, 3 December 2018.

Four more facilities will be opened in due course at Lower Sabie and Satara Rest Camps as well the Afsaal and Tshokwane Picnic Sites.

“This project was facilitated by the SANParks Honorary Rangers JHB South Branch, who within a very short space of time raised the funds required for the development”; said the KNP Managing Executive, Glenn Phillips.

The facility will include a wash up area (Wudhu Facility for both males and females); Muslim guests will need to provide their own prayer mats (Musallas).

The facility in Skukuza Rest Camp is located on the pathway between the Clock tower and the Stevenson Hamilton Memorial Library.

A brief exodus into the corporate marketing sphere proved that there is no better industry than the travel industry. Research and writing are two of Jeanette’s greatest passions, but she is always open to new challenges and different ways of doing things.
