They announce on the website only that the entrance fee is 300ksh, but when you're there you find out, that zhey charge 200ksh for the waterfall and 200ksh for the caves extra. I rather go to kaurura forest. Its cheaper and more for the money.

This is a great little place to go for an afternoon that's pretty out of the way as far as tourists are concerned. They have camel and horse riding, fishing, caves, waterfalls, and a gorgeous site for a picnic. The entrance fee is quite cheap...More

Sorry, but we didn"t horse riding or boating, but we could observe, that the charges and also the entrance fee are negotiatable if you enter in the late afternoon.
