SANParks has announced that as of 1 September 2021 it will implement cash-free payment systems in 12 of its national parks. This is part of a two-phased approach towards environmental responsibility and efforts to promote ease of use…
“From 1 September, cash will no longer be accepted as a method of payment in some of the parks. SANParks clients will be encouraged to make use of pre-booking payment systems and/or speed point payment systems in parks. All trade and tourism activities will be cash-free and therefore cash will not be accepted,” says SANParks’ Chief Financial Officer, Dumisani Dlamini.
The 12 national parks that will no longer be accepting cash payments as of 1 September 2021 are:
- Table Mountain National Park
- Tankwa Karoo National Park
- West Coast National Park
- Garden Route National Park – including Knysna, Wilderness and Tsitsikamma
- Mountain Zebra National Park
- Camdeboo National Park
- Addo Elephant National Park
- Agulhas National Park
- Namaqua National Park
- Ai /Ais-Richtersveld Transfrontier Park
