Rey Thakhuli, SanParks general manager: media, PR and stakeholder relations, says: "SANParks is postponing the free access week which is traditionally held in September, to November due to concerns regarding the number of Covid-19 cases across the country.

"The safety of both guests and staff is of utmost priority and we, therefore, have to ensure that we are in a position to effectively implement the Covid-19 visitor management procedures in all our parks at all times."

SA National Parks Week is an annual week-long campaign that provides all South African citizens the opportunity to visit national parks for free.

"The exact dates will be announced shortly. Visit a national park this year for free during SA National Parks Week, to see what it has to offer and do your part by getting to know your national parks #SANationalParksWeek and #LiveYourWild," concluded Thakhuli.
