#LiveYourWild this month, with free access to national parks and nature reserves. During SA National Parks Week and CapeNature Free Access Week, South African day visitors pay no entry fees to discover South Africa’s natural heritage.

Wild Card members already know the perk of visiting parks and reserves without paying entry fees. During Heritage Month, others enjoy the same privilege as Wild partners SANParks and CapeNature open their gates to South African citizens. Don’t miss out on the opportunity. It’s all about celebrating our magnificent landscapes, rich culture and awe-inspiring fauna and flora.

SA National Parks Week 2019

From 8 to 15 September 2019, South African citizens have free access to most of the 21 national parks for day visits.

With fun events the whole week through (like Adventure Monday, Travel Tuesday, Flora Friday or Family Sunday), you’ll surely have a reason to have fun – and be proud of our rich ecological diversity.

Good to know

Free entry excludes Namaqua National Park as well as Boulders Penguin Colony and the Table Mountain Cableway in Table Mountain National Park.

It should be noted that free access to national parks does not include free access to accommodation facilities and other tourist activities (like guided safaris or guided walks) – though SANParks is offering up to 40% off select camping and accommodation for the period if you book now.

From 23 to 26 September 2019, visitors will pay no conservation fees when entering any of the CapeNature reserves open to the public.

Good to know

Take note that normal rates and access fees apply for any accommodation booked online or via CapeNature’s Central Reservations.
