Many of you will have noticed that iSimangaliso is in the process of major infrastructure upgrades and improvements throughout the Park in our quest to offer a better visitor experience.
One of these developments is new signage, with iSimangaliso branding and information. Thousands of signs are being placed across the Park with various prototypes being tested in the first phase, prior to permanent placement. Amongst these are signs at the beaches in St Lucia. We have received several queries from concerned members of the public pertaining to these, as one of the indications is that no dogs are permitted.
This is not an early April Fool's joke but rather the result of an overzealous contractor. Please be assured that there has been no change in the status of dogs on St Lucia beaches, where they are still welcome provided they are under the owner's control.
We thank you for the feedback that brought this oversight to our attention. We trust you will enjoying making use of the improved Park facilities which will include upgrading of Jabula and Main Beach ablution blocks.
