Dinokeng Game Reserve enforces conservation fee

As Gauteng’s only free-roaming Big Five game reserve, Dinokeng Game Reserve is a must-see for all tourists visiting the province. The reserve is located mostly on land near Hammanskraal and has several public roads which pass through it. In order to maintain a natural eco-system, there are no fences between the properties within the game reserve.

From the 15th January 2013 visitors to the reserve will pay a conservation fee of R25 per adult and R15 per child.

Says Dumisani Ntshangase, Director of the Dinokeng Project, “The fee will assist us in maintaining the public roads within the reserve and also contribute towards the conservation of the area.”

Those who enter and exit the reserve in less than an hour will not be required to pay the conservation fee. It is possible to drive through the reserve within an hour without exceeding the 40km speed limit, which has been set in the interests of safety for animals and road users.

“We urge all visitors to the reserve to adhere to the speed limit and help us in conserving this beautiful space that houses such treasured animals. Visitors will be able to pay either cash or use their debit or credit cards,” concluded, Ntshangase.

Fees are payable at the following points:

  • Tau Gate (Rust de Winter Road)
  • Yingwe Gate (Rust de Winter Road)
  • Ndlovu Gate (Boekenhoutkloof Road)
  • Safari Mall (Rust de Winter Road)
  • Mongena Lodge (Rust de Winter Road)
  • Kwalata Game Ranch (Rust de Winter Road)

For more information, please do not hesitate to contact Dumisani Ntshangase on 082 612 5342 or dumisani@gauteng.net
