Visit Sanparks for free from September 12 to 16

From September 12 to 16, South Africans can enjoy free entrance to any national park of their choice courtesy of South African National Parks.

According to William Mabasa, spokesperson for Sanparks, the idea came about when they realized many South Africans are not familiar with the national parks.

As our contribution to tourism month, we decided to open up the parks for free access to any South African so we can create a sense of pride among South African people.

Mabasa urged South Africans to visit the parks and shun the misconceptions that the parks are only for tourists. He also responded to comments that the parks are expensive, saying watching a movie at cinema is more expensive than visiting the parks.

He says entrance fee is R70 and people can spend the whole day seeing animals and having picnics whereas a movie costs over R70 for an hour and a half.
