PROJECT PURPOSE

This is a pilot industry self-regulation project and once successful will be used as a bench mark and standard strategy to be rolled-out nationally to other parks.

The broader purpose of the project is to:

  • Facilitate good working relationships between public and private sector stakeholders
  • Drive the growth of the OSV industry for both SANParks and the operators
  • Enhance the reputation of Kruger National Park as a destination of choice and that of the OSV’s (specifically with private visitors to the Kruger Park)
  • Contribute towards industry transformation through dedicated upliftment programmes
  • Speak with one voice and lobby pertinent issues (Operating Licences and Vehicle Classification)
  • Contribute towards responsible tourism through good corporate governance and due diligence
  •  Improved regulations and greater adherence to these regulations
