OverviewThe iSimangaliso Authority’s business is to conserve the iSimangaliso Wetland Park and to create jobs and benefits for communities living in and adjacent to the Park through optimal tourism-based development. iSimangaliso is therefore in the business of conservation, local economic development and tourism.
Park establishment programmes have seen the removal of some 12 000ha of alien plants and commercial forests. Wetland and dune rehabilitation programmes, the introduction of game, runway upgrades, the building of new roads, game fences, new water supply, and bulk electricity supply systems and substations have all contributed to building the new Park.
