Mpumalanga Tourism and Parks Agency introduces cashless systems in all nature reserves
The Mpumalanga Tourism and Parks Agency (MTPA) announced that from 1 September a cashless system will be implemented at its visitor information centre and all of its nature reserves.
The cashless system will ensure optimal revenue collection, as well as the safety of the MTPA employees and tourists who will not have to carry cash with them when travelling.
“We want to ensure that our patrons enjoy a memorable experience when visiting our facilities. This cashless service will ease their fear of being robbed when they have to carry large sums of cash,” says MTPA head Mduduzi Vilakazi.
“The MTPA will also be able to account for every cent collected. It is a way to ensure that we generate more revenue to be able to maintain our nature reserves. This cashless system will go a long way in ensuring that we tighten all the controls on site”, added Vilakazi.
