During the week all South African citizens are allowed to enter most national parks for free for a day. The free access does not include commercial elements of the business, such as overnight accommodation in the national parks or any paid activities.
The 2019 SA National Parks Week is scheduled to start from September 8 and conclude on September 15, and is themed “Know Your National Parks”, the South African National Parks (SANParks) has said.
It will highlight the importance of the national parks encompassing “human and wildlife”.
The week is aimed at linking the South African national parks system to the global national movement and at showcasing the best of South Africa’s national parks.
