The Safari Code

The word ‘Safari’ actually means ‘to travel’ and can refer to any journey or trip. When in either a park or a reserve visitors should observe the following code:

The Wildlife Code

Respect the privacy of the wildlife, this is their habitat.

Beware of the animals – they are wild and can be unpredictable.

NG950371

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/25mph).

Never drive off-road -this severely damages the habitat.

When viewing wildlife keep to a minimum distance of 20m and pull to the side of the road so as to allow others to pass.

Leave no litter and never light fires 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 traditions of Kenya and always dress with decorum.
Observe the rules: leave the park by dusk; never drive at night in a national park.
