SA National Parks’ annual National Parks week will start on September 17.
From September 17-22, entrance to national parks such as the Golden Gate Highlands National Park (GGHNP), Mapungubwe, Marakele and the Kruger National Park is free for South African residents. GGHNP, Marakele, and Mapungubwe will extend the free entrance until September 24.
South Africans only have to produce their green bar-coded ID book at the entrance.
“Our theme for this year is still ‘Know your national parks’ and we encourage one and all to visit these parks that are full of rich history and heritage,” Lombard Shirindzi, gm of the northern region parks, said in a statement. Lombard hopes that they will see an influx of people as September 24 is Heritage Day.
A detailed programme of activities that are lined up for the week will soon be posted on the SANParks website.
