Changes to the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park fees structure have been effective as of 15 May; as announced by the Zambia Wildlife Authority recently.
Due to the recent movement of the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park entrance gate and the fencing in of The David Livingstone Safari Lodge & Spa [and also The Waterfront and Rivershack Bar] within the greater National Park, a mandatory daily Mosi-Oa-Tunya (MOT) Park entrance fee is now applicable to all guests residing or visiting the Lodge. Fees applicable are USD 10.00 per person per day for adults and USD5.00 per child under 11 years old per day.
Commenting on the changes, David Livingstone Safari Lodge & Spa Operations Manager, Keith Rissik said “hotels and lodges in the region have been mandated and are responsible to collect the fees on their behalf and then pay over to ZAWA. Thus all guests residing or visiting David Livingstone Safari Lodge & Spa are subject to MOT park fee”.
All guests and visitors who enter the park through the gate opposite the Chrismar Hotel on Sichango Road will have to register on entry prior to proceeding to the lodge.
“No additional park fees will be levied to what guests are experiencing at the moment. The river fee currently paid for the sunset cruise or any other daily activities will now be covered by the new MOT park fee. However there is the exception that there is the USD20.00 Victoria Falls National Heritage fee, which will remain,” said Rissik.
All guests residing at David Livingstone Safari Lodge & Spa are subject to the following:
ZAWA (bed) Levy USD10.00 per person on day of arrival
MOT Park entrance fee USD10.00 per person per day (International), USD5.00 per person per day (SADC resident)
Children 11 years & under USD5.00 per day (International), USD2.50 per day (SADC resident)
