On the 24 September, South Africans celebrate Heritage Day. September is considered to be Heritage Month, a time to connect with our historical, cultural and natural heritage.
As part of the celebrations of National Heritage Month, the South African National Parks (SANParks) will be honouring it’s 13th annual SA National Parks Week with a campaign that grants visitors free access to many of the national parks from the 10th to the 14th of September 2018.
The SANParks initiative offers the public free access to 21 parks of the National Parks across the country in hopes to cultivate a sense of pride for South Africa’s natural and cultural heritage, emphasizing on ensuring that people from local communities get to know and experience the beauty of a national park.
The free access to the parks does not include accommodation or other tourist activities.
As well as plenty of national parks across the country, South African National Parks Week includes free entry to the Table Mountain National Park.
Here, you’ll be able to visit popular tourist attractions at Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope for free. If you’d like to visit these points of interest during on a private basis, book a Cape Point and Cape Peninsula Tour.
South African National Parks Week includes free entry to various parks along the Garden Route, including the Addo Elephant National Park, Garden Route National Park and Karoo National Park.
One of the country’s most adored scenic drives, the Garden Route takes travellers through beautiful landscapes and quaint, coastal destinations such as Knysna and Oudtshoorn. Popular for road trips and self-drives, Garden Route Tours can be done on a private basis.
