Maasai Mara National Reserve Entry Fees

This article provides an insight into Maasai Mara National Reserve entry fees. It is one of the most popular parks in Africa.

The 1,510 km game reserve is located in the southwestern part of Kenya along the Great Rift Valley. Unlike most parks in Kenya that are managed by KWS, Maasai Mara is administered by the Narok County government.

Maasai Mara is a world-renowned destination for experiencing the spectacular wildebeest migration. The great migration occurs from July to October. Apart from the wildebeest migration, the park is home to the Big Five. These magnificent animals include lions, leopards, elephants, buffalos, and rhinoceroses.
