Visitor Information: New iSimangaliso gate system operational – 1 December 2016
Dear iSimangaliso Visitors
Park gate access procedures will be changing its access systems at the Bhangazi, Dukukudu, Nhlozi, eMshopi, Ophansi, and Sodwana gates, as of 1 December 2016. The new system will automate some of the current manual systems and assist with security in the Park. On entry your driver’s licence and car licence will be scanned and you will be asked to sign acceptance of the terms and condition of entry to the Park. Car licences will also be scanned at selected points such as St Lucia beaches and Sodwana beach ramps. Alcohol is strictly prohibited in public places and vehicle searches will be conducted at check-points. Please remember that gate fees have changed – the new tariff system can be found on our website. Due to limited connectivity, it is not possible to accept credit cards and only cash is accepted at the entrance gates.
These and other enhanced security features at all gates are for the safety of our visitors as well as animals in our protected areas. We trust you will appreciate the ongoing developments aimed at improving your visitor experience.
