Cholera found in Kruger National Park rivers

Kruger National Park rivers have tested positive for cholera, an official said on Friday.

Spokesperson Raymond Travers said that the park’s visitors and workers need not worry because there were adequate sanitation facilities in the area.

The park straddles the provinces of Mpumalanga and Limpopo, which have treated the highest number of people with the disease in the country, at about 3 000.

Travers said ongoing tests were being conducted on all rivers in the park to monitor the situation.

“There is no need for visitors to worry or bring bottled water, the park’s tap water is safe to drink,” he said, adding that the animals were not affected by the contamination.—Sapa
