The 17th annual South African National Parks Week kicks off in a week and its free access period will run from 12 to 18 September 2022.
SANParks General Manager, Reynold Thakhuli said this initiative is aimed at linking the South African national parks system to the communities and to showcase the best of our country’s national parks.
The feature element of this campaign is the free access granted to all South African day visitors carrying their official Identity Documents. Young persons under the age of 16 will be allowed free access without proof of identity.
The free access to the parks will not include accommodation and commercial activities in the park such as guided safaris in vehicles or guided walks.
Kruger, Addo Elephant, Augrabies, Agulhas, Table Mountain and Ais/Richtersveld Transfrontier Park will only have free access until Friday 16 September.
Namaqua National Park and Boulders Penguin Colony and the Cableway in Table Mountain National Park are not included in the campaign.
