The mission of the South African National Parks (SANParks) is to develop, expand, manage and promote a system of sustainable national parks that represents biodiversity and heritage assets, through innovation and best practice for the just and equitable benefit of current and future generations.

SANParks manages a system of parks that represent the indigenous fauna, flora, landscapes, and associated cultural heritage of the country. Most of the national parks have overnight tourist facilities, with an unrivalled variety of accommodation in arid, coastal, mountain and bushveld habitats.

The Organisation has managed to transform itself, continue its high research and management standards, expand the land under its protection at an entirely unprecedented rate, and has also begun to generate 75% of its operating revenue, a spectacular financial achievement compared to most conservation agencies in the world, including those in developed countries.
