Learn more about the spectacular places protected by our partners: SANParks, CapeNature, Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife, Msinsi, and Big Game Parks of Swaziland.

The most affordable way to explore

The Wild Card is the most convenient and cost-effective way to visit national parks and nature reserves in South Africa and Swaziland. Purchase annual membership and you won’t have to pay entry fees (conservation fees) every time you visit participating parks and reserves.

How does it work?

Membership is valid for 365 days from date of purchase. You can buy or renew membership online, as well as at certain park/reserve gates and receptions. If you intend to buy at a park, please confirm in advance if your destination currently sells membership.

Start visiting parks and reserves

If you buy membership online, you will immediately receive a confirmation letter. You can use this letter, along with valid proof of identification, to visit parks and reserves until you receive your Wild Card by registered mail.

If you buy membership at a park, you will receive a receipt, followed by a confirmation letter (sent by email). You can use these documents, along with valid ID, to visit parks (valid for 30 days).

Important! After purchasing at a park, you have to complete the application online within 30 days to have your card sent to you.
