THE Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality does not want to give annual rates rebates to the Kragga Kamma Game Park and Seaview Predator Park, saying it cannot be sure that the two game parks are not participating in “canned hunting”.
The municipality claims the council would be seen in an extremely poor light if it was later discovered that the two tourist attractions were involved in “such unethical practices”.
Over the years, the policy has allowed the two game parks to receive a 75% discount on normal business and commercial property rates, but the rates policy was amended last year to include an ambiguous line that the parks should be used predominantly as game parks with the sole purpose of viewing of animals. – Rochelle de Kock
