    S. African National Park Hotel Plan Sparks Race Row:confused:

    Plans to build two new hotels in South Africa's flagship Kruger National Park have sparked a racial fight rekindling the country's troubled apartheid past.

    South Africa National Parks (SANParks) wants to construct the four-star safari lodges inside Kruger to attract new visitors who are willing to spend a little more money for comfort as opposed to roughing it in a more economic campsite.

    But this has brought to the surface lingering racial tensions that have simmered since apartheid ended 17 years ago.
