Relief for South African Holiday makers this summer

Posted on Tue August 14, 2018.

SANPARKS has come to the party by lowering the entrance and conservancy fees by 50% for all South African citizens as of the l November 2018.

After a year of suffering under successive petrol price hikes, VAT increases and other economic woes there is a little light at the end of a very long tunnel for South Africans planning to visit the many beautiful locations that are on offer in South Africa.  SANPARKS has come to the party by lowering the entrance and conservancy fees by 50% for all South African citizens as of the l November 2018. This applies to all Nature Parks and venues managed by SANPARKS. This is good news for both the visitors themselves and also the hospitality industry. 

In particular, visiting the Western Cape which is a popular choice for both international and local visitors, boasting some of the finest facilities and scenic beauty, now becomes a lot more affordable for South Africans. For example: A mother and father visiting Cape Point with a ten year old will now pay a total of R188 entrance fee as opposed to the old entrance fee of R367.   

Over the past year the local and provincial governments together with the great input of the local Western Cape population have worked very hard and made many sacrifices to overcome the problems experienced during the worst drought in living memory. Our recent good rains have also contributed to the turnabout in our water crises. Although not totally out of the “woods” Cape Town and the Western Cape are well on their way to recovery and together with the great savings on offer by SANPARKS establishments make it a wonderful opportunity to holiday in the Cape.

Baywatch Guest House, holiday accommodation in Cape Town Bloubergstrand offers accommodation at affordable rates to all South Africans wanting to make the most of their visit to Cape Town.  Our tailor made tours are well priced and include day trips to SANPARK establishments such as Cape Point.
