In South Africa we are currently experiencing one of the harshest National Lockdowns seen in the world.
Our President has put extensive measures in place to aid the country in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic. A risk adjusted strategy which allows our economy to slowly reopen (Levels 5 – 1) has been implemented and the Knysna Elephant Park and AERU are continuing to respect and adhere to the governmental guidelines.
