Visitors have the option of choosing between regular or VIP tickets, which cost 20 dollars and 50 dollars, respectively, and they can buy up to five tickets using Paypal.

Ethio telecom already introduced a short code reservation service for local visitors, who can send a text message to 6030, or alternatively use the online system via the Park’s website. The online system provides two options to purchase tickets, using Paypal or a bank card.

To visit the park, it costs 200 Br for local visitors and 1,000 Br for visitors with VIP privileges.
