The Wildlife Code

When dealing with wild animals, you need to take extra caution to be safe. The Kenya Wildlife Service has set a number of rules that must be followed to ensure your own safety. Your safety is our concern.

Please Respect the Wildlife Code
  • Respect the privacy of the wildlife, this is their habitat
    • Beware of the animals, they are wild and can be unpredictable.


  • Don’t crowd the animals or make sudden noises or movements.
    • Don’t feed the animals, it upsets their diet and leads to human dependence


  • Keep quiet, noise disturbs the wildlife and may antagonize your fellow visitors.
    • Stay in your vehicle at all times, except at designated picnic or walking areas


  • Keep below the maximum speed limit (40 Kph / 25 Mph).
    • Never drive off-road, this severely damages the habitat.


  • When viewing wildlife, keep to a minimum distance of 20 meters and pull to the side of the road so as to allow others to pass.
    • Leave no litter and never leave fires unattended or discard burning objects.


  • Respect the cultural heritage of Kenya, never take pictures of the local people or their habitat without asking their permission, respect the cultural tradition of Kenya and always dress with decorum.
    • Stay over or leave before dusk, visitors must vacate the parks and reserves between 7.00am – 6.00pm unless they are staying overnight. Night game driving is not allowed.
