They announce on the website only that the entrance fee is 300ksh, but when you're there you find out, that zhey charge 200ksh for the waterfall and 200ksh for the caves extra. I rather go to kaurura forest. Its cheaper and more for the money.

This is basically a picnic spot with a few activities (ambling on a horse or camel, punting a raft around) and while glad to see it is popular (it was heaving with people), there is not much to do except see the caves, for which...More

This is a great little place to go for an afternoon that's pretty out of the way as far as tourists are concerned. They have camel and horse riding, fishing, caves, waterfalls, and a gorgeous site for a picnic. The entrance fee is quite cheap...More
