Visitors to any National Park in South Africa (see list) will pay a conservation fee for every day spent inside the parks. The fees are payable at the entrance gates and offices.

Visitors can join a loyalty programme (called Wild Card) which gives them access at a reduced rate - should they stay for longer than 5 or 6 days.

Different rates apply to South African citizens, citizens of the South African Development Community countries (SADC) and visitors from any other country will pay the standard fee.

Please also see National Park Regulations as well as Exit Permit requirements for Kruger Park.

Daily Conservation Fees
The daily conservation fees will vary according to the park visited, as per the table below:
