If you're a traveller working on a tight budget who wants to see more of our beautiful country - then you need to diarise the upcoming SA National Parks Free Access week. 

The 14th annual SA National Parks Week will take place from 8 to 15 September 2019 grants free access to most of the 21 national parks for day visitor.

And best of all it includes weekend access during this time.

Parks excluded from the free week are Namaqua National Park and Boulders Penguin Colony (although locals already get a reduced rate) and the Table Mountain Cableway in Table Mountain National Park.

It should be noted that free access to parks does not in include free access to accommodation facilities and other tourist activities.

The inaugural South African National Parks Week took place in 2006 and was aimed at linking the South African national parks system to the global national movement and to also showcase the best of South Africa’s national parks.

"We are proud to once again celebrate this week with our partners, Total South Africa and FNB. This year SANParks is pleased to announce that it has extended SA National Parks Week to include weekends, heeding the request from South Africans who don't have time to visit national parks during the week."
