Cape Town -  With the summer school holidays in full swing, families and loved ones are invited to Addo Elephant National Park's school holiday programme. 

From 4 until 14 December, Addo and the South African National Parks (SANParks) will be running a 'KIDS GO WILD” programme for all ages.

Parents need to note though that an indemnity form needs to be signed before their child can participate, available at the game drive office. Also remember that the programme is dependent on the weather and may be cancelled in bad weather conditions.

Most of the programme's events are free, barring the kids' game drive. Parents can make the payment for this through SANPark's Quick Payment Portal on their website.

You can also make outstanding payments for specific reservations through this portal without having to register on SANParks' online bookings section.

Visitors who made bookings via traditional channels like email and through their call centre can use this portal to finalise their booking with their credit card, and only need their reservation number and client code. This is obtainable when SANParks sends a confirmation letter after booking.
