Kenya National Park fees for KWS areas

Most wildlife areas in Kenya are managed by the Kenya Wildlife Services (KWS). You can find an overview of all KWS park fees on their website, here.

Nowadays, you can only get your permit through KWS’ online portal. Simply select the ‘National Park Entry’ option and apply for a permit. To access the portal, you need an eCitizen account (the same one you need to apply for a tourist visa). Creating an eCitizen account can be done via this link.

There is no limit on the allowed amount of visitors in KWS parks, so you won’t have to worry about being denied at the gate. We suggest that you buy each permit one day before entering a park. This will allow you to modify your itinerary on the go, and remain flexible in case of travel delays.
