Ngorongoro Conservation Area Concession Fees

3 posts in this topic

As of 1st December 2017, the Tanzanian government is planning to implement an increase in concession fees for all permanent accommodation based inside the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.  A concession fee is a rental tax paid to the government by all hotels/lodges/camps that are located inside these boundaries, for every bed night utilized.

This increase has only affected a limited number of lodges.  Although you may have received separate emails from various lodges and camps, we would like to provide you with a simplified list below of what type of changes you can expect.

Please find below a list of lodge and camp names along with the supplementary increase to the per person per night accommodation pricing from 01 December 2017 onwards into 2018.

 


Rhino Lodge: +$51
Ngorongoro Serena Lodge: +$41
Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge: +$41
Ndutu Safari Lodge: +$50 
(estimate)
TWC Lake Masek Tented Lodge: +$29.5

Above concession fee increases are inclusive of VAT

Please note that andBeyond Ngorongoro Crater Lodge pricing will not change as they are absorbing the cost of this increase for the 2018 season.

Any properties that are not mentioned in the above list will not have any price change.

And of course there is the Wednesday fee, the weekend supplement, the charge for green vehicles manufactured before 1998 and the surcharge for left-handed blondes. The fees for shooting sticks and red hats remain the same.:D

 

Goodness, the fees for the Ngorongoro Crater get more complex by the year - but maybe I am just lazy to work them out.

Complicated Indeed.

If you are booking through an operator (or direct with a lodge) they will usually give you the inclusive cost but I remember arriving at the entry gate and being amazed at the number of charges we were hit with.
