The presidential decree, published this Thursday in Diário da República, states that the diploma is applicable to all national and foreign citizens who wish to access and use spaces that are part of environmental conservation areas.

According to the diploma, consulted this Friday by Lusa, minors between 6 and 12 years old must pay a fee of 2.00 kwanzas and over 12 years old 5000 kwanzas for access.

For land safari, the fee varies between 4000 kwanzas for children, who must also pay 2000 kwanzas if camping, and 8000 kwanzas for adults and 4000 kwanzas for camping.

The decree also determines a fee of 1000 kwanzas/child and 2000 kwanzas/adult if they want to be accompanied by a tour guide.

Fees for access to the park or other conservation areas are charged by the managing entity, by issuing tickets, and must be paid in national currency, through automatic payment, and can also be done in cash.

According to the President, the revenue collected is distributed 60 percent in favor of the ministerial department responsible for the environment sector (which must allocate 30 percent to the National Institute of Biodiversity and Conservation, 20 percent to the national park and 10 percent to local communities) and 40 percent in favor of the National Treasury.

Children under the age of six, former combatants and scientific researchers are exempt from paying fees, while access and use for children under 13 is subject to a 50 percent fee reduction.

Angola currently has 14 terrestrial conservation areas, namely nine national parks, one regional park, two integral reserves and two partial reserves, according to the EcoAngola association.
