If you’re over 60 and a South African citizen or permanent resident, you can stay at any of 18 national parks for less at specific times of the year. So why not go game viewing in Kruger, Addo or Mokala, enjoy the magnificent landscapes of Augrabies and Camdeboo, or unwind by the ocean at Agulhas or Tsitsikamma? And those are just some of the options you can save on if you’re in your 60s!

These savings are valid for select times of the year. The discount periods for the remainder of 2018 are:

  • 20 August to 20 September
  • 10 October to 29 November

Plus, if you like to get back to basics when you travel, you’ll be glad to hear that camping is discounted by 40% during these periods.
