Kenya has reduced fees to all its Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) game parks and reserves, authorities have said.
In an address, Kenya’s Cabinet Secretary for Tourism, Najib Balala said due to the adverse effects of Covid19 to the tourism and wildlife sector, they had reduced entry fees to all game parks and reserves to 50%.
“This will apply for all categories of tourists local, residents and international, effective July 1, 2020 for one year,” said Balala.
The Cabinet Secretary added that they had also given a one-year moratorium to lodge owners in all parks and reserves, starting July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021.
“At the same time, we have given a 50% discount on filming fees for both local and international producers filming in parks and reserves,” he said.
“This is to encourage all filmmakers to profile Kenya as a magical destination.”
