What is the next step for the new SANParks? The Former Chief Executive, Mr Mavuso Msimang: "…our corporate plan, which was developed and approved by the Board recently, clearly states that ‘we exist in order to conserve the natural resources that are associated with National Parks in South Africa. But our business also includes making sure that South Africa and the people of the world have access to this heritage."
South African National Parks Mission Statement
"To acquire and manage a system of national parks that represents the indigenous wildlife, vegetation, landscapes and associated cultural assets of South Africa, for the joy and benefit and spiritual well being of the nation and the people of the world."
