A doubt about conservation fees

Unread postby LetiziaZ » Wed Jul 25, 2012 6:01 pm

Hallo, We are an italian couple and we will be in SuothAfrica in August for about 2 weeks.
We would like to visit soma parks but at the moment we are only sure that we will be 3 nights sleeping in the Kruger in three different rest camp.
We would like to know if we will pay 3 or 4 daily conservation fees for the Kruger (so 1152 or 1536 R) ….could you help me?

I’ve tried to find this information in other posts and topics but I didn’t find , I’m sorry if my English is not good and probably I’ve made some mistakes….I hope you will be able to help me to understand.

We need to know to be able t calculate if it will be better for us to do the Wild card or not, when we will have decided exactly hove many parks we will se…


Thank you very much for your kind reply

Bye
Letizia

If you buy a foreign Wild card it is only worth it if you stay for 6 nights otherwise its cheaper to pay the daily conservation fee. The fee is different from park to park but Kruger is the most expensive

Welcome to the forums! :yaya:
(And don't worry about your English, it is good enough. ;) )

We international visitors only have one option, the International card. For a couple that costs R 2,195.
So work out your route (and fast! you may run into reservations trouble) and work out how many days you will need to pay. That will tell you which option is cheaper.

Enjoy the holiday!

Welcome to the forums :clap: If you pay the daily conservation fee for you and your SO for three days in Kruger National Park it is going to cost you R1188. The conservation fee is R198 per person per day. Enjoy your stay in South Africa. :thumbs_up:

And make sure you get your daily 6-pack of SA Beer for the conservation fees, :twisted:

Thank you very much....you are really very kind.... all of you!!!

So, if I have understood well, if I sleep 3 nights in the Kruger I will pay only 3 days conservation fees (1188), not for four days, is it correct?

Thank you.... GRAZIE!!!!! :thumbs_up:
