“Being the leader in the parking industry, isn’t about being the biggest, it’s about being the best!”
MEET OUR CEO
Hannes Botha: CEO of Karabo Parking Management
I founded Karabo in 2012 with the goal of establishing a parking management company which thrives on bypassing convention and championing creative parking solutions for your business.
We have sites under management across all regions of South Africa: commercial, retail, hospitals, airports, industrial parks – these are all sectors which trust Karabo to manage their car parks super-efficiently, transparently and cost-effectively.
My vision has always been to transform parking operations into expertly managed and profitable operations, utilising the latest technology available to the industry. Together with my team, I aim to make this vision a reality for our clients – every single day.
As an industry professional with years of experience in parking management and operations, I want Karabo staff to be ‘superheroes’ for our clients' customers – the C-suite exec who’s late for his plane, the surgeon who’s lost his parking disc, the stressed parent who’s hit the boom.
We commit to minimum stress and maximum ROI for our clients.

Our vibrant corporate colours ensure that staff uniforms are both professional and highly visible – they allow parkers to easily identify our staff.
EMPOWERING OUR EMPLOYEES
We believe the best way to empower employees through training is by utilising repetitive, habit-forming methods. We offer continued learning and development in the workplace, which ultimately enriches our employees holistically. We encourage our employees to be proactive and make well-informed decisions.
They are our most valuable asset. Investing in their talent is vital to sustainable business growth and success. We follow rigorous processes to recruit qualified and suitable staff that align with our culture. We always ensure that the staff we place on sites are sensitive to the culture of the property.
Our customised and interactive training programmes assist our employees to understand that customer satisfaction is vital to the strength of our brand.
Our range of training programmes is extensive. It includes, amongst other focus areas, the well-structured Induction Programme. In this programme, focus is placed on how staff need to view themselves as an integral extension of the Karabo brand. Customer service excellence is an essential part of our corporate culture and represents the essence of our brand. It is yet another area of focus on which we place huge emphasis.
