Victor Nxumalo, the head of the security service, said that the operations were aimed at ensuring that anything that could lead to poaching, nor the explosives, ammunition and rhinoceros horns were brought in or left in the Kruger Park.
"Although the purpose of the roadblocks is to stop criminals, arrests are often made and fines imposed between R1 500 and R3000 for other violations of the rules and regulations of the park," said Nxumalo.
Nxumalo said that a driver without a driver's license was found during the operation.
"We escorted him out of the park."
The combined operation with police, park staff and the national defense force of the SA, started at 06:00 and was expected to end at 12:00.
