How to get to Maasai Mara
Some people choose to Fly to the Mara, which is
serviced by several airstrips. There are daily scheduled flights from Nairobi, and the coast.
Charters also use these strips. Accessing the Mara area is difficult
without private transport. Most visitors come to Maasai Mara as part of a
Safari package from Nairobi or in a Hire Car.
The point of road access to this region is Narok, a 3 hour drive from
Nairobi. There are regular buses and matatus to Narok from Nairobi and
The park has well established internal roads and tracks. Accessing areas
outside the reserve is only possible using basic public transport, and
finding your way around can be difficult.

arrange specialized tours, treks or hikes in this area.
