Sanparks rates for visitors to the parks

2018-12-20 06:00

SANParks announced that Table Mountain National Park (TMNP) will be charging differential tariffs as of Thursday 1 November at all its entry gates.

This announcement was made last year in November.

These entry gates include Cape Point, Boulders, Silvermine, Tokai and the picnic sites. A year’s notice was afforded to allow the public and commercial business the opportunity to prepare for the rates change.

All the other 19 national parks have been charging differential tariffs since 2005 and Table Mountain National Park has moved to follow suit.

As of 1 November 2018 the park has three rates for entry at the gates:

. The standard rate which is what foreign visitors will pay. No documentation is required to be submitted at the gate upon entry on this rate

. The SADC rate afforded to those visitors who can prove they are SADC nationals by producing their original passport on arrival at the gate.

This requirement is in place for every adult who enters the park on this rate and not just the driver of the vehicle.

. The local rate which South African residents will be charged if they can prove they are SA residents at the gate on entry.

To claim the SA rate on arrival, the accepted documentation is one of the following: SA ID book, SA ID card, SA driver’s licence, SA passport, proof of permanent residency or valid visa (work, spousal, volunteer, retirement, study).

Every adult in the vehicle who wishes to claim the South African rate on entry must provide proof they are South Africans.

It is not sufficient that the driver of the vehicle can prove they are South Africans.

Proof of your local address is regrettably not accepted.

It needs to be an official document as listed above. Children under 18 do not need to supply proof of South African identification when entering with an adult South African, provided the adult qualifies for the SA rate on the date of entry.

Refunds will not be offered for those who pay the standard tariff on entry and then post-departure submit proof of South African identification.

The park requests all locals visiting the park to have their SA identification at hand when stopping at the gate kiosk to facilitate the quick processing of all vehicles through the gates.

All children over the age of 12 are billed as adults, a policy that applied across all national park gates.

Should you plan to visit regularly, it is suggested that you consider applying for a Wild Card through the loyalty programme.
