The Kenya Wildlife Service over the weekend changed their payment policy and will, with immediate effect, only permit payment with a VISA Card, MPesa, a mobile money service or by bank deposit, the latter however only possible at two specific branches of two banks, Kenya Commercial Bank and Standard Chartered Bank.
