  • As Ezemvelo only charges conservation fees which include hiking I assume that the chain ladders hike fee is being levied by the Lodge. What is the reason for this charge?

    Ezemvelo is sponsored by the Government. Local hikes from the Lodge ie Mahai is free. The chain ladder hike however is R95/p as we have to maintain the ladders ourselves. Witsieshoek is a community Lodge and privately run.
