Kruger’s Letaba Elephant Hall reopens after upgrade

Cutting the ribbon for the re-opening of the Elephant Hall are SANParks Chief Executive Officer, Mr Fundisile Mketeni with the President and Vice-Chancellor for the University of the Sunshine Coast, Australia Professor Greg Hill.

The Elephant Hall at the Kruger National Park’s Letaba Rest Camp has reopened and now features newly designed display panels, lightning system, flooring, cabinets and landscaping. Funds of more than R1,5 million were supplied by Australia’s University of the Sunshine Coast and the SANParks Honorary Rangers.

The Elephant Hall houses exhibits of the skulls and tusks for the Kruger’s legendary elephants, including the well-known Magnificent Seven.

“Although the temporary closure might have inconvenienced our guests, we hope that the refurbishment has mad the facility even better than it was and that guests enjoy it. The Letaba Elephant Hall has been converted into an international icon in terms of standards, and our gratitude goes to our sponsors, for their determination, financial and man hours contribution,” said SANParks CEO, Fundisile Mketeni, during his address.
