Conservation Fees

Please note that Mara Triangle fees are paid according to where visitors 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 Reserve at Purungat Bridge. When paying for your ticket, visitors are required to present their passports or National ID (driver’s licenses are not acceptable) to verify their status in the country. Failure to present the appropriate identification will result in visitors paying the 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.
