On 11 October 2022, the U.S. mission in South Africa issued a Security Alert, which reads in part as follows: “Due to an increase in crime, to include the recent murder of a foreign tourist, the U.S. Embassy in South Africa recommends that U.S. Citizens avoid Numbi Gate at Kruger National Park and instead use either Paul Kruger or Phabeni gates when entering and leaving the park. Please remember to be situationally aware when traveling and make stops at designated areas, such as garages, and service stations. Be mindful that protests and road closures are frequent in the area. It is recommended that everyone contact their lodge or hotel before travel to understand current road and travel conditions. If you encounter issues, contact the Police or your lodge.”
