How to get to the Mara Triangle
- Sekenani Gate Route
From Narok, take a left turn to Sekenani gate. Once past the gate, proceed towards Keekorok Lodge and turn right, following the signs to Mara Serena and drive to Purungat Bridge gate.
- Aitong Route (via Mara North Conservancy)
From Narok, drive through Ngoregore-Lemek-Aitong-Mararienda-Oloololo Gate.
- Kisii Route (via Kilgoris)
From Kisii, drive to Kilgoris and to Lolgorian. Turn left at the Lolgorian junction and proceed through Olopikidongoe-Engos nanyuki-Kawaii and descend the escarpment. Turn right at the bottom of the escarpment towards Oloololo Gate.
- If you are staying at Mara Serena, the Sekenani route is fastest, but the road is very rough and corrugated from Narok to Sekenani gate.
- If you are staying outside of the park (Kichwa Tembo, Batleur Camp, Olonana Camp, Kilima Camp, Mara Siria, Mara West, Mpata), the Aitong route is fastest.
