Research Infrastructure

RESEARCH INFRASTRUCTURE

To promote research activities a number of research centres have been developed in key EKZNW protected areas across the province. These research centres will assist researchers by providing accommodation, office and laboratory space, access to databases and other information, as well as logistical support (including, in some cases, field assistants).

During the registration process you can enquire about the availability and conditions of use of research accommodation. Generally, given the need to generate income to offset the inadequate State subsidy for conservation, no discounts are given for the use of tourist accommodation.

You will need to quote your Project Registration Number when making a booking for any research accommodation.
