Why So Many Tourists Now Want Accommodation in the Waterberg
Established as the first such park in South Africa in 1926, the Kruger National Park quickly became a magnet for wildlife enthusiasts and has remained so for the better part of a century. Given the huge number of visitors that, each year, flock to this iconic venue, both from within the country and from overseas, the park authorities have been required to adopt a more commercial policy that caters for the needs of the tourist, as well as for those of the wildlife. The policy has seen the establishment of franchised fast food outlets, souvenir shops and, a steady increase in the prices of admission and accommodation, resulting in many more travelling to Waterberg venues, east of the Kruger.
