The four South African National Parks (SANParks) in the Frontier Region (Addo Elephant, Camdeboo, Karoo and Mountain Zebra National Parks) recorded good increases in popularity over December.

Cumulatively, the four recorded an increase in visitors of 6.4%, up from 42 414 in December 2014 to last month.

The largest of the parks, Addo Elephant National Park, noted a 4.4% increase in visitors (28 815). The park also registered an 18.6% increase in the number of activities sold, up from 3 061 to 3 629.

The Park’s entrance gate along the N2 just outside Colchester, Camp Matyholweni, continues to attract more visitors owing to its accessibility from PE.

Gate entry figures increased by 13% over the corresponding months.
