http://www.maasaimara.com/about_mara_info.asp lists prices to be 80USD per adult and 40USD per child under 11 for all foreigners. Yet, for residents it is 12USD per adult and 6 USD per child. In the USA park fees are the same no matter where you are from. It just seems so grossly unfair. Also, forgetting about unfairness for a moment, given the huge discrepancy between the fees, why can't lodges/camps located in Mara buy resident tickets and provide to their guests? Why is it that lodges quote you excluding the park entry fees and tour operators include these fees into their prices?
