Absolutely, Lis, but SA companies can do the same, with massive experience in bush lodge management, which Radisson does not really have, IMO. -O-

The point is, why did SANParks outscource to a foreign company in 2009/10 already, and now plead local involvement as a financial cornerstone of SP projects, visions, partnerships etc.? -O-

I do not know any SA hotel chain apart from the Protea, which is not exactly the top 0*\

We all know that they will (if ever) cater mostly for overseas visitors and being a well known and appreciated international hotel chain is probably the reason for the choice -O-
