Through this process, SANParks will embark on a board driven and all-inclusive stakeholder exercise with a view of developing a long term vision and strategy that will guide in determining the desired outcomes in the long term and the organisation of the future.

Further development of Vision 2040 and the strategy to support it, through an inclusive, co-creation process involving a wide range of stakeholders and building the organisation that can ensure realisation of this vision, is at the heart of the phased project, introduced by this submission.

Vision 2040 will create Protected Areas
and a protected area agency that:

  • Are healthy, sustainable and climate resilient
  • Re-awaken and nurture national pride
  • Belong to, heal and inspire all South Africans
  • Are world-class in every aspect
  • Are prosperous, with tangible and intangible stakeholder benefits
