The Berg en Dal rest camp restaurant in the Kruger National Park that was on fire earlier on Monday has been extinguished. 

The restaurant caught alight on Monday morning, with rest camp staff and contractors refurbishing units at the camp rushing to put out the blaze. Luckily, it was extinguished before the entire building was damaged.
