New Filming and Photography Permit Tariffs for SANParks
South African National Parks (SANParks) has revised its procedure and tariffs for commercial filming and photography in the national parks under its management.
This new tariff schedule has been approved by the SANParks Executive Committee and is in line with the Filming and Photography Policy that was approved by the Board in 2008.
The implementation of the new tariffs and the new procedure at the beginning of August this year came after an intensive review of the permitting process.
The result is a significant increase in permit fees for commercial filming and photography in the parks, and an internalising of the permit-issuing process for most of the national parks, where previously, this was outsourced to a service provider.
