The speed limit at the park remains at 50 km/h on tarred roads and 40 km/h on gravel roads.

SANParks spokesperson Ike Phaahla says the park has adapted a zero-tolerance attitude to speeding.

“We had quite a high number of speeding fines that were issued to tourists who were visiting and half of those were again staff members.”

Disciplinary action will be taken for implicated staff members.

“Our staff members who were also given those fines, they are also going to face disciplinary action,” Phaahla says.
