Big Game Parks, who run three of Eswatini’s biggest and most popular parks, Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary, Hlane Royal National Park and Mkhaya Game Reserve have released the following statement regarding the current status of their parks and changes with regards to COVID-19:
Following the announcement by His Excellency, the Honourable Prime Minister yesterday, and the listing of Tourism & Hospitality as an essential service, Big Game Parks will be opening our park gates to low volume tourism from Friday 17th April.
Our parks will ensure high standards of sanitization and the practice of responsible social distancing.
For all our Parks, only individuals, couples and small family units (4-6 members) will be allowed to access the parks. This means that no kombis or busses may enter the parks during extended Lock Down.
The Restaurants and Communal braai facilities will remain closed until further notice.
All visitors are requested to bring and wear their own masks, bring their own sanitiser, to constantly sanitise and to maintain adequate social distancing when signing in at the gates and when in close proximity to other people.
To celebrate Eswatini’s emergence from Covid-19 Lockdown, we have come up with fantastic specials for our locals! It is time to get out and enjoy the activities you may not have experienced in the past!
We at Big Game Parks believe that quiet, quality time in Nature is essential for the health of body, mind and soul. We are dedicated to safe, respectful, healthy Nature experiences. Should our conduct fall short at any time, or you have suggestions for improvement, please contact 7602 1394 with relevant details.
We wish you a wonderful sense of freedom!
