ALL funds generated from conservation fees (entry fees) at South African National Parks, are used with the primary mandate to oversee the conservation of South Africa’s biodiversity, landscapes, seascapes and associated heritage assets through a system of national parks.

The entry tariffs to Addo Elephant National have increased from Thursday 1 November 2018. The daily conservation fees for South African citizens have increased to R77 and R39 for children under the age of 12. Children under two enter for free.

Visitors from SADC countries will pay R154 whilst those from all other foreign countries will pay R307. The rate for children is always half the price of the adults – at R77 and R154 respectively.

Conservation fees are discounted for South African citizens in view of the financially disadvantaged status of the majority of people and the contribution by taxpayers to government funds.

“The parks managed by SANParks that protect rhino populations will have a marginally higher increase in the annual conservation fee to assist with the rising operational costs of anti-poaching activities,” said Rey Thakhuli, SANParks General Manager: Media, PR & Stakeholder Relations.

The conservation fee therefore includes a portion dedicated to rhino conservation at these parks.
