The Mpumalanga Tourism and Parks Agency says its tariffs at nature reserves in the province will increase from the 1st of November.
In a statement, the agency says that the tariffs include entry fees to reserves, as well as camping and self-catering accommodation.
“This increase will go a long way in addressing some of the infrastructure maintenance challenges experienced over a period of time,” it says. “Our intention is to improve our facilities and the viewpoints at all our main nature reserves in order to provide visitors with the best possible experience.”
The tariff increase also applies to the various activities offered at MTPA reserves, including game drives, hiking trails, and bush walks.
The MTPA is committed to ensuring that all our visitors enjoy a comfortable, safe and unforgettable experience at all our facilities, hence the need to review our tariffs in order to ensure proper maintenance and upkeep of the nature reserves.
September is Tourism Month, and Mpumalanga is this year’s host. If you want to enjoy the paradise province before the price hike, there’s no better time.
