Supply of Fuel, Diesel & Petrol to National Parks and the Appointment of Dealers to Operate Fuel Service Stations in National Parks

PPP Investment Opportunity

South African National Parks (SANParks) intends to form a Public Private Partnership (PPP) in which it gives a selected private party the rights to supply fuel, diesel and petrol to National Parks and to appoint Dealers who will operate Fuel Service Stations in National Parks.

SANParks invites manufacturers and petroleum product wholesalers to submit detailed bids in line with SANParks' mandate and objectives for this PPP opportunity. Interested parties will be expected to meet certain criteria in order to qualify.

SANParks will enter into a PPP agreement with the preferred bidder for a period likely to provide a fair return on investment for the private party. In return, the private party will meet agreed operating, development, refurbishment, broad-based black economic empowerment (BBBEE) and environmental obligations, and pay a PPP fee to SANParks.
