CONSERVATION FEES FOR CONCESSION GUESTS IN ZIMBABWE NATIONAL PARKS
The concessions operating within Zimbabwe National Parks (ZimParks) have been informed that as of 1 July 2019 ZimParks have changed the way that conservation fees are levied.
All guests (irrespective of nationality) booked into any private concession inside a Zimbabwe National Park will be charged the international day visitor’s tariff per day (24 hours) for the duration of their stay. This means instead of the overnight local, SADC or international charges previously advertised a flat rate of $15 per person per night will be levied.
To save any inconvenience to our agents, tour operators or guests the following will apply:
For any bookings made for the months of July and August 2019: Chundu Island will absorb these additional costs.
For all bookings that have already been billed and paid in full (including conservation fees) for future bookings (after August): Chundu Island will absorb these additional costs.
For all new bookings as of 20 July 2019, and travelling after 31 August 2019: the new billing will apply
For existing bookings travelling after 31 August 2019 which have not been settled in full (including conservation fees): an additional invoice will be generated by our reservations office for the difference which we will pay over to Zimbabwe National Parks on behalf of the client – or the difference may be settled at the lodge, but we request that guests are made aware of this additional charge prior to travel.
