update (12 Dec 2012): According to Times Live, the gate quotas Kruger National Park is implementing during the festive season are as follows:
- Giriyondo Gate – 275/day
- Pafuri Gate – 385/day
- Punda Maria Gate – 385/day
- Orpen Gate – 550/day
- Phalaborwa Gate - 550/day
- Phabeni Gate – 550/day
- Malelane Gate – 550/day
- Crocodile Bridge Gate – 385/day
- Numbi Gate – 550/day
- Kruger Gate – 750/day
Once the daily quota has been reached, only people who made pre-bookings are allowed to enter. The rest will have to queue and rely on the people to move out of the park in order to create a space for them. However, this situation does not affect overnight visitors.
All visitors should be able to produce their identity document or any alternative form of identification at the gates to avoid problems. Each gate has its own number of daily visitors allowed e.g. Kruger Gate is 750 people.
Visitors to the Kruger National Park can gain access through one of the following gates: Crocodile Bridge, Malelane, Numbi, Phabeni, Kruger, Orpen, Phalaborwa, Punda Maria, Pafuri and Giriyondo.
