Kenya offers older citizens free entry to park

Kenya is offering senior citizens aged 75 and above free entry to the national park in the capital.

The Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) also has a similar offer for people with disabilities as well as children living in care homes, allowing them access to facilities in the park including an animal orphanage.

The offer will last a month – during which the Nairobi National Park commemorates 75 years since it was established.

The KWS will also be exhibiting a photo gallery showcasing the park since its establishment in 1946.

Tourism Minister Najib Balala said the country was proud to have a wildlife habit “a few kilometres from [Nairobi’s] central business district”.

“Obviously, it is no mean achievement to maintain and sustain such a critical facility located in a vibrant capital city and regional hub with so many competing land uses and economic interests,” said Mr Balala.

The minister tweeted about the offer:
