The "facility " is the park and ride carpark. Not the hotel. Small stuff!

Thanks, Robert! \O

Addressing the MCC Milburn said, "The proposed hotel development will make use of a park-and-ride facility of approximately 2,5 hectares, which will be based at the Malalane Gate entrance.
This facility, of which 40% is owned and funded by SANParks, will operate on a 24-hour basis for visitors to the Kruger National Park, inclusive of the proposed hotel development."


The park&ride is just a parking lot....very little input financially compared to the whole hotel/lodge development! \O

SP have no financial input regarding the latter! (Hopefully!)

So by the way,... when will we, as concerned nature lovers, be invited
to the party of decision making regarding this cheapskate hangout that
Sanparks have in mind???

Any EIA involves public input at some stage!!!???
Heh,.. H.e

According to Mr Chris Engelbrecht, a local attorney acting for some of the registered interested and affected parties, they were concerned about the development for technical reasons, as the proposed hotel would impact negatively on the serenity and integrity of the park.
From this I read that the EIA has already been started?
God put me on earth to accomplish a certain amount of things. Right now I'm so far behind that I'll never die.

As the developments of the two Hotels in question are along separate paths, we now have two threads!

Most info regarding Malelane Hotel is on the old thread: viewtopic.php?f=190&t=235

There are other projected developments too, which can be addressed under this forum: viewforum.php?f=190
