Our days of eating ripe Marula fruit with the elephants are over. The Kruger National Park has banned all drinking of alcohol in the park’s public areas. According to park spokesperson William Mabasa, the decision has come about due to an increasing amount of guests getting out of hand with littering, skinny dipping, playing loud music, aggression and speeding on park roads.

With the park’s guests getting wilder than the Big 5, they had no choice but to enforce the Liquor Act within the park’s perimeters. Day visitors will not be allowed to bring alcohol into the park, however tourists who have booked accommodation and restaurant reservations may enjoy a drink in the privacy of the establishments. Basically here are your options:

  1. Don’t drink in the park’s public areas = You, and fellow tourists have a memorable experience.
  2. Drink in the park’s public areas = Get arrested and spend the night in a cell with a guy called ‘Bubba’.
