Posted on 16 April 2024 By Savanna Douglas

The Twee Rivieren Bird Hide in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park has undergone significant upgrades to ensure wheelchair accessibility.

In a collaborative effort, South African National Parks (SANParks) and the Northern Cape Economic Development and Tourism (DEDaT) have enhanced Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park’s infrastructure to promote inclusivity within the beloved Kgalagadi

This upgraded bird hide now features a wheelchair-friendly walkway.

With these improvements, the park can better accommodate guests with mobility impairments and the elderly, allowing them to effortlessly connect with nature through the newly paved path leading to the bird hide.

This marks a stride in SANParks’ commitment to creating accessible and user-friendly environments across all of South Africa’s national parks.

“SANParks is immensely thankful to its partner and sponsor, the Northern Cape Department of Economic Development and Tourism, for their support. We anticipate continuing this fruitful partnership to keep the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, along with other national parks in the province, among the premier nature destinations and a symbol of pride in South Africa’s conservation efforts,” stated a SANParks spokesperson, as quoted by Good Things Guy.
