The South African National Biodiversity Institute (SANBI), which manages South Africa's National Botanical and Zoological Gardens, has announced that Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden in Cape Town will implement dual pricing for non-South African and South African residents. According to SANBI, the introduction of the new pricing structure is due to the increased costs to the organisation and financial setbacks of 2020 due to Covid-19.
From 01 April 2021, non-South African residents of 18 years and older will pay R200 for an entry ticket to Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden. South African Residents of 18 years and older (with ID) will pay R80, while students from a South African institute (with student card) will pay R45. The admission for scholars/learners will be R25. Children under six years are free of charge and South African residents over the age of 60 (with ID) are granted free entrance on Tuesdays except on public holidays.
