‘The guests who are currently at the Resort have been informed and they will be allowed to self-isolate within the resort provided they are willing to cook and do house-keeping for themselves,’ Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife said.

Any guests who booked a stay during this time will be requested to transfer their bookings to either the Mpila Resort, which is within Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park or Mantuma Resort at Mkhuze Game Reserve. These guests will also be allowed to reschedule their stay for a later date in the year or request a refund.
