Ezemvelo is a state funded agency responsible for nature conservation and the management of bio-diversity in KwaZulu Natal. In doing so, Ezemvelo is expected to supplement its subsidy through commercial operations. Admissions revenue is one such source of additional funds that make it possible for Ezemvelo to carry out its mandate.

As you may know, Ezemvelo has made every effort to avoid price increases, even though the overheads associated with operating our entrance facilities have gone up. With the last increase in labour and associated costs, we have had no option but to increase the entrance tariff at all of Ezemvelo’s facilities. Attached is a schedule of the new tariffs that will be implemented at Ezemvelo admission points.

This increase will affect all the listed facilities with effect from the 20th September 2013. In our continuing attempts to provide the best service Ezemvelo will honour all valid pre-paid entrance vouchers purchased before the 11th September 2013.

We appreciate your understanding during this transition and are confident that you will find the enhanced quality of our service to be worth the increase. We thank you in advance for your support and continued patronage.
