As you can see from the sign, foreigners pay almost ten times as much to enter the park as locals do.
However you may feel about dual pricing, it is a fact of life in Kenya.
There are many ways of looking at this issue:
As tourists we are naturally wealthier than the locals, so we should pay more.
In that case, should someone from the Scandinavian countries for instance, pay more than someone from Easten Europe?
The locals already pay for the upkeep of this park as part of the taxes.
A lower entrance fee for locals will encourage more local people to value their surroundings and help in the conservation of wildlife and the environment.
Unique Suggestions: My personal opinion is that it may be a rip-off, but I have paid so much to be here in the first place, and the fact that I have the opportunity to actually come here and enjoy this park, makes me extremely fortunate. Why lose sleep over a few pounds?
Fun Alternatives: The way I see it is - you have two choices: either you go and pay, or you don't pay and stay at home. Your call.
Don't tease the ELEPHANTS! Thats what happen to a minni-bus driver! He did that and a young female rammed the bus 4 times!
