SANParks will increase its Conservation fees from 1 November 2018 in all National Parks. All funds generated from conservation fees are used with the primary mandate of SANParks which is to oversee the conservation of South Africa’s biodiversity, landscapes, seascapes and associated heritage assets through a system of national parks.
General Manager: Media, PR & Stakeholder Relations, Rey Thakhuli, said: “The parks managed by SANParks that protect rhino populations will have a marginally higher increase in the annual conservation fee to assists with the rising operational costs of anti-poaching activities. The conservation fee therefore includes a portion dedicated to rhino conservation at these parks.”
For individual park increases please see this list of conservation fees here for all national parks.
