Please note that park fees are paid to where you stay; if you are staying in the Mara Triangle and are driving through Sekenani Gate on the Narok side, do not pay park fees until you enter the Triangle at Purungat Bridge. When paying for your ticket, guests are required to present his/her passport or National ID (driver’s license not acceptable) to verify their status in the country. Failure to present the appropriate identification will result being subjected to non-resident rate.
All tickets can be purchased from KAPS online with a VISA card, in Nairobi, or upon arrival in the Mara Triangle from an authorised KAPS employee stationed at either Purungat Bridge, Oloololo Gate, or Serena Airstrip. Child rates are eighteen and under, and children under three are free. Visa credit and debit cards are accepted at all Mara Triangle entry points.
