National Parks Week: How to Secure Your Free SANParks Tickets

Starting tomorrow, on September 16, 2023, National Parks Week kicks off, offering the opportunity to claim free SANParks tickets for a limited period.

However, it’s crucial to note that you can’t simply show up at the gate of your chosen national park and expect free entry. To gain access, you must follow an online booking process. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it:

1. Visit the SANParks Website: To begin the process, go to the SANParks website.

2. Register (If Not Already Registered): If you haven’t registered on the SANParks website previously, you’ll need to do so. During registration, you’ll be required to provide your ID Number and contact details.

3. Book Your Visit: To book your visit and secure your free SANParks tickets, click on the provided link on the SANParks website. Avoid going directly to the specific park’s website.

4. Select National Park, Date, and Number of Visitors: Within the SANParks booking system, choose the national park you wish to visit, select your preferred date, and specify the number of people in your group.

It’s crucial to emphasize that free SANParks tickets can only be booked online after midnight on Saturday, September 16, 2023. Attempting to book before this time will not result in free access and will prompt you to enter payment details.

When you collect your tickets at the gate, remember to bring a valid South African ID document. Additionally, be prepared for potentially long queues, as many people will be eager to take advantage of the free SANParks tickets.
