Entrance fees

Unread postby JMJ » Tue Aug 06, 2013 2:23 pm

Hello -
We will be in the park for 3 nights / 4 days.
Can you tell me what entrance fee we will have to pay in total for the 4 of us (2 adults + oir children aged 18 and 14) + vehicle ?
Not fully clear on the web site whether the Daily Conservation Fee needs to be paid fr ever single day in the park.
Or is it cheaper to buy a WILD CARD ?
thank you for your good adbice :-)

Welcome to the forum JMJ.

The Daily conservation fee is just that. Daily. You pay as follows;

Day visitors pay for the day.
Overnight visitors pay per night.

A WILD CARD breaks even at about 6 days, and lasts a year.
Whatever (according to BB): "You are correct but I don't want to admit it".

If you are only staying a few days in the park it is cheaper to pay the daily conservation fee and they charge for everyday you are in the Park But having said that and Kruger is not your only destination you can use a wild card for many other parks including some non sanparks destination in KZN and Cape Nature but your card would cover all sanparks throughout SA so if are say visiting Cape Town You don't have to pay to see the penguins or to gain entrance to Cape Point or to travel into the west coast national park . You would have to stay at least 6 days in the KNP to make the Wild card viable
