South African National Parks (SANParks) has announced the dates of the South African National Parks Week 2020. The 15th edition of the annual event will take place from 16 – 20 November 2020. Due to the coronavirus pandemic and South Africa’s alert level 2 regulations, SANParks has postponed the free access week, which is traditionally held in September, to November.
The South African National Parks Week grants South African day visitors free access to most of the 21 national parks in South Africa, with special emphasis on ensuring that people from local communities close to parks get to know and experience a national park. Like in the previous years, free entry excludes Namaqua National Parkas well asBoulders Penguin Colony and the Table Mountain Cableway in Table Mountain National Park. It should be noted that free access to the National Parks does not in include free access to accommodation facilities and other tourist activities.
