I went birdwatching here recently and we saw 35 species in 3 hours including 7 new ones. I felt that the grounds especially the lakes were pretty, but the whole property looked like it needed more maintenance. It looked somewhat neglected.

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.
