Media Release: New entry fees for Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park

The new rates will be charged per day - not per visit - and are as follows:
|Category||Rand Rate||Pula Rate|
|Adult (over 15 years old)||25,00||20,00|

The Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park was established on 7 April 1999 with the signing of an agreement between South Africa and Botswana in which the two countries undertook to manage their adjacent national parks - GemsbokNational Park in Botswana and Kalahari Gemsbok National Park in South Africa - as a single ecological unit.
With this park both South Africa and Botswana benefit by ensuring the long-term conservation of the valuable wildlife resources and ecosystem in the area.
