Hilltop Resort situated inside Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park has been closed by Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife with immediate effect after one of the Resort’s managers contracted COVID-19.
‘The closure of the resort is a precautionary measure and is also in line with the advice received from Ezemvelo’s medical team. The advice follows the covid-19 positive test results of one of the Resort Managers who, as part of his duties, interacted with all resort staff as well as the guests,’ Ezemvelo said in a statement.
The Resort is expected to reopen on Thursday, January 7 2021.
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.
All guests who have bookings during the affected dates will be requested to transfer their bookings to Mpila Resort which is within Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park or Mantuma Resort at Mkhuze Game Reserve. They will also be allowed to choose any other Ezemvelo Resort should they prefer not to transfer to either of the two resorts indicated above. Ezemvelo will also be amenable to requests of re-booking to a different future date or refunds.
All three main gates Memorial, Nyalazi, and Cengeni gates will remain open and the public is encouraged to visit the park and make use of the Centenary Centre to buy food as the Hiltop restaurant is also closed.
