Put your Wild Card to good use and see how many parks and reserves you can visit. Entries for round 2 of the Wild Parks Challenge are closing soon. Enter now for the chance to win free Wild Card renewal and a five-day holiday!

The Wild Card gives you a year’s access to more than 80 protected areas in South Africa and Swaziland. How many of those will you visit? That’s what we want to find out in the Wild Parks Challenge.

How does it work?

The Wild Parks Challenge runs over a year and every quarter there is free membership renewal for the person who visited the greatest number of parks. After 365 days, the member who visited the most parks in total wins the grand prize: a holiday for four people at a Wild Card partner park.

To participate, send us pictures of the parks you visited in the competition period: for quarter 2 that’s park visits between 1 February and 30 April 2019.

If you weren’t organised enough to get your entries in for quarter 1, you can still submit park visits between 1 November 2018 and 31 January 2019 to count towards your annual total. Remember to include your Wild Card number so we can track your park visits throughout the year.
