Hmmmmnnn. Not such a clever idea in the long run. Fire and ice don't mix well . . . .

Jumbo made a good point. Extra SP vehicles were never mentioned as a solution at any of the meetings. In fact 6 of 7 meetings identified SP vehicles as part of the problem.

There is a small park and ride SP system operated by the community at the southern gates already. (since 2015?) More later.

Here is a link to the Vuswa Community Drive project, 4 vehicles:


Hop in and ride - it's as simple as that! Guests at Kruger now have the opportunity to make use of the "Park and Ride Scheme" where you can get to see the Big 5 and contribute to local empowerment.

The "Community Drive Project" is a joint venture between SANParks and Vuswa Fleet Services. It is an initiative to empower people on the periphery of the Park.

Vuswa was belatedly fired by SANParks after this scandal: https://www.africawild-forum.com/viewto ... 318&t=3419

In no place there is talk about prices nor will it be possible to know how well prepared the community members will be in order to run this.
Communities will eventually own and run these vehicles.
I wonder what kind of contract they will have with Vuswa Fleet Services :-?

Is Vuswa running this fleet or is he still the owner of the fleet? Should he not be investigated?
