New Park Fees in Namibia

At the end of 2020, the Namibian government announced a new conservation fee which would result in new park fees in Namibia. It commenced on 01 January 2021.

At the same time, the Namibia Wildlife Resorts (NWR) are currently running domestic rates to boost local tourism. This is an attempt to mitigate the devastating effects of the current COVID pandemic and kickstart the sector. I thought it fitting to run a short post to get the news out.

The New Park Fees in Namibia with the Conservation Fee

The calculation of park fees in Namibia is an overcomplicated system. It is calculated using a three tier system:

  • Namibians
  • SADC citizens
  • All other tourists

Children and vehicles are charged separately and on top of this. I recommend you read my previous post on How much it costs to visit a national park in Namibia for a full explanation.

NWR Domestic Rates

The other big change, for locals and members of SADC countries,  are the introduction of domestic rates by NWR.

The current special rates for Namibians and SADC citizens

The current rates are only available to NWR Namleisure card holders. You can apply for a Namleisure card online and collect it from the NWR office in Windhoek or Swakopmund.

And those are the New Park fees in Namibia!

Enjoy your travels and be safe!
