The Nairobi National Park 75th Anniversary

November, 25th 2021 The Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) held a media briefing brunch at their headquarters in Nairobi, Langata Road ahead of Nairobi National Park 75th Anniversary. The brunch was hosted by the Cabinet Secretary for Tourism & Wildlife Hon. Najib Balala and KWS Director General Brig. (Rtd) John Waweru.

During the brief the CS for Tourism & Wildlife Hon. Najib Balala said that to celebrate the  75 years of the Nairobi National Park they will be ready for the 16th of December.  He further announced to celebrate this day that they will be giving out free entrance to the first 75 people that will enter the park on the 16th. The CS also encouraged the senior citizens to visit our parks and anyone above the age of 75 years accompanied with a companion, the vehicle and driver will be offered free entry to the park for a month starting today.

 

WS, DG, Brig. (Rtd.) John Waweru noted that Nairobi National Park is a unique park because of its location, it strikes a noteworthy balance between conservation and modernization. He also acknowledged that the park has faced many challenges and milestones, including the recent Covid-19 pandemic that was a threat to many economies worldwide.
‘I am happy to report that Nairobi National Park has witnessed a remarkable surge in local tourism, even as our other popular parks saw pandemic-related reduced revenue streams. We are continuously exploring new ways to attract tourists as well as partners, through innovative campaigns such as the current Zuru na KWS.
He concluded by noting that Kenya Wildlife Service will continue to be a fierce guardian of Kenya’s rich wildlife biodiversity and its habitats for as long as we are mandated to do so. ‘It is our sworn goal to ensure the sustainability of the park over the next 75 years and beyond through The Service’s three strategic corporate pillars; Conservation, Collaboration and Enterprise.’
During the event, the Bohra community donated 10 wheelchairs
