Travel Forums Africa and The Middle East Park Fees in Kenya

Hi Travellers,
just a quick 'Heads-Up' to let you know that the Kenyan Government has raised the daily entrance fee to all National Parks from $50US per day to $75.
What a ridiculous thing to do unless there's something I'm missing here.
If anyone has any insight into this matter? please, please, please let me know.
Thanks

I am with you on this. I do understand price raises in general (inflation etc blabla), but it would be much better to give people a 50% income raise...;)
I surely don't hope they need the money for building roads through parks

I think they are trying to minimise the amount of vehicles entering the city center and maybe they thought that by hiking parking fee,most people will prefer using public means to access the city center hence easing up traffic.
