Just received this email, and thought it would be useful to remind again, given that there may be a whole stack of you heading for the mountains this festive season. If you do, enjoy it, and we want to see some pictures and get feedback! Have a great festive season, and enjoy the new years festivities responsibly.
EZEMVELO KWAZULU-NATAL WILDLIFE
NEWS ITEM No: 2009 - 12 - 21
Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife (EKZNW) appeals to all visitors to the many protected areas under its management to take care of themselves and their loved ones during the festive season holidays.
Visitors to the uKhahlamba-Drakensberg Park are reminded that they need to fill in the hiking and rescue registers if they are going out on any walk or overnight hike in the Park.
The registers are available at all EKZNW reception offices in the Park and provide critically important information for search and rescue teams in cases of emergency.
It is essential to complete these registers legibly and as accurately as possible because this information could save lives.
Visitors are reminded that the weather in the Drakensberg can change very rapidly and they should equip themselves accordingly.
