Taxes and Extras

Please note: From 1 September 2017 all visitors over 18 years old will be required to produce an identity document, passport or alternative valid identification e.g. driver’s licence card for scanning upon entering/exiting the Parks.
A standard daily conservation fee of R352 for foreign visitors, R176 for SADC nationals with a valid passport, and R88 for South African Citizens and Residents with ID, will be required on entry to the park.

The camp and access road are strictly for the use of residents only.
Guests should consider staying at Mata Mata before their departure for Kalahari Tented Camp, as it is approximately a 3 hour drive from Mata Mata to Kalahari Tented Camp.
Mata Mata itself is approximately a 3-and-a-half hour drive from Twee Rivieren.
A 4x4 with high ground clearance and low range capabilities is recommended.
The roads in the Kgalagadi are not very sedan friendly and sedan vehicles find it difficult to cope with the road conditions and some roads might not be accessible when wet, although management intervenes to maintain the roads on a regular basis.
