Kenya Wildlife Service entry fees into National Parks have been slightly lowered. With the reduced number of tourist visitors to Kenya over the last two or three years, it was widely considered that the entry fees into the most popular parks were too expensive. It was also agreed that the entry rate for students under 18 was punitive. The non-resident rates for the period 1 March to 30 June 2016 are as follows:
|US$||Old rate||New rate|
|Amboseli and Nakuru||90||70||40|
|Tsavo East and West||75||60||40|
|Meru and Kora||75||60||40|
From 1 July it is planned that further reductions will be announced, and VAT on conservancy fees will be removed. We wait and see..
