Kruger National Park: Stricter movement control for the welfare of rhino

South African National Parks (SANParks) has installed three boom gates on access roads into an area designated as the Intensive Protection Zone (IPZ) in Kruger National Park (KNP). The IPZ, located north of the Sabie River, is a portion where a combination of resources and technology provide a more secure environment for the rhino in Kruger. The boom gates will be manned by the Rangers and will be operational effectively from 05 June 2015. The IPZ barriers are meant to control night movement of people in order to minimize risk factors associated with late travelling between sunset and sunrise. They are found on:
  • H1-2 road north-east of the Sand River low water bridge
  • H12 road – on the Sabie high level bridge
  • H10 between Lower Sabie and Tshokwane
