The price increase applies to all Wild Card Programme Conservation Partners which includes SANParks, CapeNature, Msinsi, Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife and Big Game Parks of Swaziland. “The new Wild Card membership tariffs are applicable for the period of 1 November 2017 to 31 October 2018,” says Wild Card Programme Manager, Hein Grobler.
The all parks individual Wild Card membership, giving access to 80 plus parks and reserves around southern Africa, which include SANParks, Msinsi, EKZN Wildlife, Cape Nature and Swazi Clusters Parks, has increased from R515 to R565 for one person for the year.
Couple Wild Cards for all parks (two adults or one adult and one child) will now cost R930, up from last year’s price of R845.
Family Wild Cards for all parks (two adults and up to five children or one adult and up to six children) will be R1,140 for 2017/2018, up from last year’s R1,035.
The adjustment is done on an annual basis and falls in line with the yearly Consumer Price Index applied to daily conservation fees payable in South Africa’s national parks.
Wild Card members don’t pay daily conservation fees when entering SA’s parks or reserves, and they only pay once and are free to visit how often they like for a whole year.
All funds generated from conservation fees are used with the primary mandate of SANParks which is to oversee the conservation of South Africa’s biodiversity, landscapes, seascapes and associated heritage assets through a system of national parks.
