Charges are payable at the 1st gate upon arrival for entry into the iSimangaliso Wetlands Park.  The once-off fees are currently R40 per adult or R35 per child plus a R5 community levy per person.  Vehicle charges are R55 for vehicles holding 1-5 persons (e.g. 4 door car) - charges increase for larger capacity vehicles.  Guests staying overnight will also be charged R7 per person per night at this point.  Gates are open 24 hours a day.  This allows access in and out of the park.
At the 2nd gate, fill out a Coral Divers form. This indicates that you will be staying in our camp. The R95 (Low Season) or R120 (High Season) rate per person per night (KZN Wildlife fees) will be included on your invoice. We accept this payment on behalf of KZN Wildlife.
