Lion in the Boma at Karoo National Park on 12 April 2016.

This from sanparks.org:

South African National Parks (SANParks) announces that it will be relocating the lion which escaped from Karoo National Park at the end of March to the Addo Elephant National Park (AENP).

The lion will be moved into a boma within an existing 200ha enclosure in the Kuzuko contractual section of the AENP for him to become bonded with the two (2) young females who are currently in the enclosure.  The two young females were the cubs that were rescued in Addo Main Camp after their mother was killed by a snake early last year. They survived for about 2 months on their own and, with the help of the public, rangers were able to rescue them. The CEO of SANParks, Fundisile Mketeni said, “This lion, at three years of age, is still young enough to bond with the two females and ultimately establish himself as the resident pride male”. This option forms part of the Frontier Cluster’s Carnivore Management Plan.  Continue reading

Springbok Sevens coach, Neil Powell, called on Chris Dry to join his for the HSBC Singapore Sevens tournament, to be played on Saturday and Sunday, in place of the injured Philip Snyman.

Snyman took a knock during the Blitzboks’ devastating semi-final defeat in Hong Kong and although he was cleared to play following the necessary protocols, team management decided to rather play safe and rest the forward, who played in his 35th tournament last weekend.

“There is no need to risk Philip,” said Powell. “Player welfare will always come first and Philip is an important player for us. We have a willing and able replacement in Chris, who will bring massive experience and ability to the team, so the call was made with that in mind.” Continue reading

V&A Waterfront goes head-to-head with European destinations

Cape Town, 8 April 2016 – Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront took pride of place as the only South African, and only one of three nominated destinations in the world, at the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) ‘Tourism for Tomorrow’ Destination Awards held at the 16th WTTC Global Summit in Dallas, Texas, on Thursday, 7 April.

With Parkstad Limburg in the Netherlands emerging the frontrunner, David Green, CEO of the V&A Waterfront said this was nonetheless a defining moment for the business: “The fact that we were nominated by an organisation the stature of the WTTC, alongside destinations such as Parkstad Limburg and Swiss Parks Network in Switzerland is testament to the fact that our offering is comparable with the best in the world.

“While the V&A Waterfront is fortunate to boast many attractions, that alone is not enough to distinguish ourselves as an international tourist destination. It requires a holistic, sustainable vision for development, protection of historical assets and an inclusive approach that is as welcoming of locals as it is of visitors. These key strengths have enabled the Waterfront to hold its own on a global tourism platform. Continue reading
