"It's 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" MTPA adds.

MTPA further states that all tariffs will be adjusted upwards by a small margin and continue to be charged in South African rand and will be reviewed annually, guided generally by inflationary pressures and we will continue to inform the public of these changes.
