Nice park. Animals. All that.

Regrettably the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) failed to honor published park entry rates for our group. On their own website, rate for nonresidents is $35/adult. We were surprised when they tried running our cards for $43. We were told rate had gone up.

Why is this not reflected in advertised rates on website? Why was there no notice of January 1 rate increases in advance of January 1? That is basic business protocol.

We presented website rates at ticket office and requested published rates be honored. We were shown an internal document stating 23% rate hike. Tourists are not privy to KWS internal documents.

We escalated to manager who likewise refused to honor published rates. In my country, this is called fraud.

Our group paid higher rate. However KWS unprofessionalism was not the first impression with Kenyan parks we’d hoped for. We felt scammed.

It’s fine to increase rates. However if tourists base decisions on entry fees advertised by the government then show up and get charged a different amount, that makes for a poor experience. Our grievance has been been filed officially such that accurate rates might be reflected online.

I wonder how many other surprises we’ll encounter should we continue exploring Kenya’s parks. I am far less enthusiastic now than yesterday.

VISITED: 2 January 2022; $43 USD/adult; credit cards accepted

I couldn't have had a better experience with family, the place was amazing, and very affordable too. Everything exceeded my expectations, especially the view of the city from inside the park.

You haven’t been to Nairobi if you haven’t visited the National park . Amazing place and really nice to spend some time . You enter with your own car or you can hire a minivan inside to drive you around

I really wanted to go to the park as I think seeing wildlife with the skyscrapers of the city in the background is pretty cool. Honestly, we had great animal sightings! We saw the only Rhino (along with her baby) on a 2.5 week safari in multiple parks and conservancies in East Africa! We saw amazing rapters, ostrich, crocs, hippos, zebs, giraffe, numerous herds, and lions with cubs. We literally left while they were closing the gates. Huge hugs to our ranger from African Horizons, Eric. Fantastic visit and a great start to our wildlife journey further afield in Kenya & Tanzania

Although it may not be the park with the most wildlife viewing in Kenya it is nice for a long morning. We saw zebras, giraffes, buffaloes, lions, white and black rhinos, several monkey and antelope species, crocodiles, birds, hippos, jackal and more. There were especially a lot of hartenbeest and ostriches in the park. The highlight is seeing animals with the skyline of Nairobi in the same view. It is really weird but also funny. The park is nice for a day trip in Nairobi.

We had a Saturday afternoon game drive and it was such a great experience. We saw lions, zebras, rhinos, giraffes, and a whole lot more. Mr. Peter Leweika +254711890451 was our driver/tour guide and he helped us find as many animals as possible. The tour is highly recommended for those who wish to see wild animals without leaving the city.

Kenya is the best , their climate is all time cool. The nature was simply stunning and let us speechless in many occasions. It was great to see how welcoming people were; the great Nairobian and we were always offered extremely nice places to stay for our over night. Thank you to Silver Spark Africa for organizing for us such a great vacation.
