Port Elizabeth

Nov 5, 2019George – Visiting the picture-perfect Garden Route National Park (GRNP) is a feast for the eyes. The Park’s variety of landscapes, seascapes and waterscapes is what draws visitors throughout the year to the Region.The Park spans across 128,000 hectares, 1/3 of this landscape are indigenous forests and some 2/3 of fynbos.Its waterscapes are of significant value for the conservation of biodiversity including Knysna’s estuary which is ranked number 1 by independent researchers for its biodiversity and Swartvlei ranked 6 out of 250 in South Africa.The Park is popular and attracts both local and international visitors.The GRNP has adjusted its entrance fees also known as conservation fees for most of its gates to include CPI (Consumer Price Index) this year. Suggestions from local cyclists were considered. A day’s pass for cycling the world-famous Harkerville trails and Homtini costs R53. There is an introduction of monthly, seasonal and a family permit for cycling.There is also a 20% discount applicable to vessels that are kinder to the environment such as 4-stroke engines, provided there is proof thereof. Likewise, tariffs for canoes, rowing boats and electric boats get a discount to encourage more use of environmentally friendly activities. 30 day-permits cost R100 and annual permits R200.Plants and trees sold at the Diepwalle nursery (Knysna forest) range from R18 for 1.0L to R213 for 20L.Garden Route National Park Entrance Gate feesTsitsikamma SectionSouth African Citizens and Residents (with ID)         R62 per adult, per day                                                                                  R31 per child, per daySADC Nationals (with passport)                                R124 per adult, per day                                                                                  R62 per child, per dayStandard Conservation Fee                                      R248 per adult, per day                                                                                  R124 per child, per dayNature’s Valley SectionSouth African Citizens and Residents (with ID)        R56 per adult, per day                                                                                 R28 per child, per daySADC Nationals (with passport)                               R56 per adult, per day                                                                                 R28 per child, per dayStandard Conservation Fee                                     R112 per adult, per day                                                                                 R56 per child, per day Wilderness SectionSouth African Citizens and Residents (with ID)  R46 per adult, per day  R23 per child, per daySADC Nationals (with passport)  R92 per adult, per day   R46 per child, per dayStandard Conservation Fee (Foreign Visitors)  R152 per adult, per day   R76 per child, per day Knysna SectionSouth African Citizens and Residents (with ID)R38 per adult, per day R19 per child, per daySADC Nationals (with passport)R76 per adult, per day R38 per child, per dayStandard Conservation Fee (Foreign Visitors)R152 per adult, per day R76 per child, per dayMore tariffs can be found on the Park’s website: More information on tariffs is available on the Park’s website: https://www.sanparks.org/parks/garden_route/tourism/tariffs.phpPicture: King Edward Big Tree, Diepwalle, Knysna forestFollow more RNEWS articles, subscribe to our YouTube channel and for breaking news LIKE us on Facebook.
