Free entry into all gates of Kruger National Park during SANPark Week

Posted by Magda on Wed September 2, 2015 in Tourism.

Free entry at all gates to the Kruger National Park is offered to all South African citizens from 14 September to 18 September

Free entry during SANParks Week is for some South Africans the only opportunity to experience the beauty of the Kruger National Park, whilst regular visitors can afford to enter daily from Monday 14 September to Sunday 18 September 2015. This initiative was launched in 2006 to address the concern that most South Africans cannot afford to access national parks. The Krugers’ head of public relations, William Mabasa, said the aim is to encourage all citizens to take care of the country’s conservation areas. The initiative is only for South African day visitors and citizens must present their green bar-coded ID books at the gate of entry. Daily quotas will apply, so it is important to be at the gate as early as possible. During September entry gates open at 05h30. Normal rates apply for commercial activities such as guided tours and walks.
