This is essentially a zoo! Not a reserve/park!!! Interesting range of animals however (lions, cheetahs, hyenas, ostriches, baboons, etc.)

The Impala Sanctuary is great for a day out with a loved one. The stroll through the pathways offers a sense of relaxation, and the guides are very knowledgeable of their craft

It has the most popular wild animals in Africa. Its an okay place. What they could improve on is maybe provide a guide to help explain more. But generally its a nice place to learn

Impala Sanctuary is a good place but without tour guides to show you around or direct you anywhere it was poor in terms of customer service. Great place anyway

This hidden animal sanctuary has various antelope species that are so tame as to walk around with the visitors the wild cats are caged but quite friendly too. It is a must visit if you are in Kisumu Town.

Good morning Derrick, from memory it was considerably cheaper for a Kenyan citizen than a foreigner. I think it is around 2500/- for foreigners and around 1000/- for citizens. This may have changed since April.
