Just a few questions on how the 'Standard Conservation fee' works.
We are from Australia, so according to SANPark website, we'll be paying R204/person at Kruger National Park, per day visit.
Just want to confirm that this fee is paid/collected at the entry gate, as we enter? (or as we exit?)
If we plan to stay two consecutive nights in the rest camp inside the park, do we pay R408 per person (ie R204*2 for two-day's fee), upon arrival at the gate? Or do we pay R204 when we first enter the gate, and pay the other R204 when we leave?
Another scenario I have is, say if we are only staying one night at a rest camp inside the park, and if on the first day we arrive at 6am when the park opens, we pay R204 upon arrival, spend the night at the camp, and leave the camp the next day as early as the gate opens, eg at 6am, do we have to pay another fee when we exit the gate, because it is 'the next day'? If this is the case, wouldn't it be better if we exist the gate at 6pm, by spending the next day game driving ourselves (so essentially that means we have two days game drive) to make our money worth?
I'm so confused as there isn't much info on SANParks website for this fine details.
Any help/advice will be highly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
