Visitors to Amboseli National Park will soon enjoy better services following the commissioning of the construction of the new Kimana Gate by Hon David Mwiraria, the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) Board of Trustees chairman. The project, which will include an information centre, a visitor waiting lounge among other facilities,is funded by the American development agency USAID to the tune of Sh21.6 million. The ground breaking ceremony was attended by Mr James Hope, the USAID Kenya Deputy Director and Mr Julius Kipng’etich, the KWS Director.
 
The Kimana gate is important for tourist arrivals given that it is the second busiest in Amboseli National Park. With the recent opening of the tarmacked 100km Emali-Loitokitok route, the park is set for a big increase in visitor numbers and therefore construction of a new modern gate is timely.
