South African National Parks Week kicks off on Monday, 8 September until Friday, 12 September, offering free day visits to all South Africa citizens.

This annual campaign under the established theme ‘Know Your National Parks’ allows locals with valid identity documents an opportunity to spend a day at a national park of their choice free of charge.

It should be noted that this free access does not include accommodation and any commercial activities such as guided game drives, horse trails, etc.

Next week is the ideal opportunity for South Africans to enjoy the sights and sounds of Addo, the third largest national park in the country.

Addo is home to the big 5 and lion sightings are not uncommon and if you really lucky you might see a huge herd of buffalo, or even the elusive Rhino.

Visitors will be able to go on a self-drive through the Park, enjoying the more than 600 elephants, hundreds of bird species, buck and even the famous Addo dung beetle.

Jack’s picnic site is situated in the middle of the park – the ideal stop-off for a good old South African braai.
