• A 16% value-added tax (VAT) applies to all tourism activities and packages and is mostly included in the quoted price.
  • In major national parks an additional ‘bed levy’ is charged to tourists, which is also usually (but not always) included in the rates for the upmarket lodges. For self-catering options, a levy (around US$5) is often added to the bill.

  • Some more upmarket restaurants will add in a 10% service charge.
