The Rhino Protection Programme (RPP) collaboration between the Department of Environmental Affairs, South African National Parks, Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife (EZEMVELO) and Peace Parks Foundation - has committed R1.43-million to EZEMVELO to bolster the efforts of its wildlife veterinary teams who fight quietly beside conservationists and security forces at the frontlines of the rhino poaching war every day.
The Mangosuthu University of Technology (MUT) has become the first university in South Africa to offer a Post Graduate Diploma in Conservation. Addressing guests at the launch of the diploma, Sifiso Keswa, Manager: People and Parks at Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife, said the announcement represented a “hugely significant development” in the weight now being invested in the multi-facetted character of the overall conservation discipline.
Please note that Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife’s booking system will be updated to be in line with the Payment Association of South Africa and the First National Bank requirements. These changes will be effected from the beginning of March 2015 and will require customers to undertake a two stage payment process where the bank will send them a “One time Pin” via an SMS or email that they will need to enter in order to finalise their booking. Should you experience any challenges duringthis period, please email your booking requirements to firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively please fax it to 086 505 8889. We anticipate that the updated booking system will be fully operational again by the end of March 2015.
We are also encouraging visitors that are wanting to book accommodation in our resorts in early March to make use of the current process before the change over on the 1st March 2015.
Please note that between 16h30 and 18h00, on the 25th of Feb 2015, the web booking portal for bookings.kznwildlife.com will be offline for maintenance. In addition, we ask for your patience during the course of the weekend. Should the site be offline, our technicians will be making every effort to bring it back online as soon as possible. Many thanks in advance.
