Fourteen Falls

3964I went to Fourteen Falls with Pat this past weekend. It’s about an hour and a half drive from Tala via the Thika road route. The road isn’t too bad as long as you sit in the front of the truck (they only use modified pick-up trucks on this route for some reason). The fare was 100 shillings, which isn’t too bad. The other option is to go to Nairobi (150 shillings) and then to Thika (150 shillings), which takes you on a nicer road but eats an extra 400 or so shillings and a few hours of your time. There hasn’t been too much rain lately, so the water was a little low (and green…), but we still had a nice time relaxing with some snacks in the shade.

    Was there a “warden” who insisted you buy a ticket to see the falls? When I went there once this guy appeared bearing a receipt book of the local town council claiming that there was an entrance fee.

      Yeah, they’re really trying to turn it into a national park of sorts. There’s a booth at the entrance with a sign detailing the fees. The charge was 150 shillings for a camera, but we (of course) said we didn’t have one…

      Haha, of course! It’s a “national park” so you have to pay the regular fees. Kenyan citizens are free if I remember correctly, but I’m mtalii so I had to pay like 200 shillings I think?
