The Mpumalanga Tourism and Parks Agency (MTPA) will with effect from 1 December 2020 implement the new tariffs for the 2020/2021 financial year at its various nature reserves around the province.

The tariffs for the 2020/2021 financial year will remain largely unchanged to cushion our patrons from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the economy and personal spend.

“Although we have decided not to increase all the tariffs, we have made tariff adjustments with regards to different pricing for domestic and international tourists. The Covid-19 pandemic has had a major impact on the tourism sector at large as such increasing all tariffs would not be feasible in this financial year”, said Mr Johannes Nobunga, CEO of Mpumalanga Tourism and Parks Agency.

The MTPA will be introducing new tourism activities for specific nature reserves aimed at enhancing the product portfolio and further attract the domestic market as well as increasing more choices to enhance visitor experience. These activities include amongst others horse riding and mountain biking at Songimvelo nature reserve.

“The MTPA is governed by the MTPA Act of 2005, which obliges the Agency to progressively generate its own revenue collection. It is therefore important to note that the income in general will be used for continuous upgrading of infrastructure at our nature reserves and further provide visitors with the best possible experience and value for money”, concluded Nobunga.
