Grab your copy of the SANParks Times Winter Edition
01 June 2017
Winter is a time for adventure in South Africa’s National Parks.
The June issue of SANParks Times, on shelf now, will help you find it. Join us as we explore 4x4 routes in the parks, and find the most eco-friendly spots to spend your holiday.
We place the spotlight on the endangered lappet-faced vulture, this year’s Bird of the Year, and decode lion pride dynamics. Learn how climate change is drastically affecting fynbos biodiversity, and about new zones on Wilderness’ beaches to protect white-fronted plovers.
Read up on strandings of dolphins off the coast of Addo, and a whale shark that drew crowds in the Knysna Estuary. Keep track of new developments in local rhino horn trade, and on a new court in Skukuza that may be a game changer for the anti-poaching fight.
We’ll show you how to spot the Big Seven in Addo and new spots to stay in West Coast. Catch up on crossing the border when in Kgalagadi, and on all there is to do when heading to Augrabies. This issue follows the active adventurers heading out to Augrabies and Mapungubwe, by bike and on foot, and showcases Tankwa’s most exciting birding sighting yet. We even spot leopards in /Ai/Ais-Richtersveld and explore the impacts of these predators in Namaqua’s neighbouring communities.
Now, you can even keep the little ones entertained with our new Kids page, packed with activities, and find the most useful gear and books to take along to the parks.
SANParks Times includes news on conservation issues from all the national parks in the country.
