KWS reopens visitor facilities in National Parks and Reserves

Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) has Tuesday announced the reopening of all its facilities to visitors across parks, reserves and sanctuaries.

Closing time for all facilities has also been readjusted to 6:00 p.m.

This follows the Presidential Address on May 1st, 2021, which lifted the partial lockdown in five counties and adjusted the curfew time.

In a notice announcing the reopening, KWS said they remain committed to strict adherence to Covid-19 prevention protocols as outlined in the Ministry of Health guidelines, to safeguard the health and safety of our staff and clientele.

KWS also insisted wearing face masks, maintaining physical distance and washing hands or use of hand sanitiser is mandatory while in their facilities.

“Visitors are welcome to Zuru our parks, reserves and sanctuaries for a memorable experience. We thank you for your continued support,” the statement concluded.

KWS has previously announced the closure of all picnic sites and other sites in Parks, Reserves and Sanctuaries where visitors have a tendency to congregate in the five disease infected areas.

The directive affected sites in Nairobi, Machakos, Kajiado, Kiambu and Nakuru counties.

In a statement, KWS said all National Parks, Reserves and Sanctuaries would remain open from 6 am, with an adjusted closing time of 5 pm with strict observance of Ministry of Health Covid-19 protocols.

KWS had stepped up measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19 in National Parks and Reserve in line with the 15th Presidential Address on Coronavirus pandemic.
