Get ready, nature lovers! South African National Parks (SANParks) will be hosting its 13th annual free access week from 10-14 September 2018. This gives South African day visitors the opportunity to gain free access to most of the 21 national parks. It encourages locals to explore parks closest to them and enjoy the facilities without having to pay.

Some parks will even be extending the week into an additional free weekend, more information will be released soon. SANParks Week has proven to be successful in terms of education and awareness of conservation issues.

“The survival of the SANParks system and our natural and cultural heritage lies in the people of South Africa. Environmental education and protection is the responsibility of everyone,” said Fundisile Mketeni, SANParks CEO.

Don’t miss out on this annual event to experience South Africa’s beautiful natural heritage. SANParks offer a variety of activities to enjoy in the splendour of nature, and includes golfing, nature walks, game drives and cycling.
