Entrance Fees Pugu Forest reduced to 10 US$

The Government has reduced entrance fee to forest reserves from 30US$ to 10US$

 

After long waiting (amendment 2007) the Government has reduced entrance fees to Forest Reserves like Pugu for Tanzanians from 3,000 to 1,500 tshs and for non-citizens from 30US$ to 10 US$ for adults. We fully recommend the price reduction while the Pugu Forest can now be utilised by more environmentally friendly visitors who will in the end outnumber the illegal visitors. By changing the purpose of the forest from an illegal resource into recreational and other environmentally friendly activities it will be possible to recover the forest and turn it into a biodiversity hotspot again.

We are still looking for the official confirmation of this information.
