Wild Card v Daily Fees

Unread postby Irishgal » Tue Jun 04, 2013 3:40 pm

Hi All,

I am trying to work out if it is more cost effective to use daily fees instead of purchasing a wildcard, particularly as my son is 16 so is at a child rate on daily fees, with the wildcard I have to purchase a couples card to cover us both.

Is the daily fee charged on a 24 hour basis? E.g. we will be entering Kruger and staying for 6 nights is this classed as 6 daily fees or is the 7th day when we are leaving the park also counted, so 7 daily fees?

6. The day you enter is charged and not the day you leave, unless it is the same day.
Whatever (according to BB): "You are correct but I don't want to admit it".

I think you may want to check that, Adult rates for Daily Conservation fees apply to anyone 12 and over. So you would be paying Adult rates for your 16 year old.

Thanks for that Sara, I saw that the Wildcard classed a child as under 18 so assumed the daily fee was the same, you are right though, it is a better option to purchase a couples wildcard for us both :)
