    Default Mara Triangle gates to open earlier in the day

    For information (not quite sure what the last statement re closing time for ticketing means):

    The Maasai Mara National Reserve has amended its opening times at all gates into the Mara Triangle. They now open at 06h00, half an hour earlier than the previously.
    Aruasa David, Tourism Officer at the Mara Conservancy, said previously all gates entering the Mara Triangle opened at 06h30. “From the beginning of this year, all our gates open at 06h00 daily, not only for specific lodges/camps.”

    In addition, David pointed out that ticketing for tourists ended at 18h30 daily.

    Thanks, Tony.

    I would imagine it means that the gate closes at 1830 and park fees etc can’t be purchased after that time. Everyone has to be back in camp or at their lodge by 1900 and, even then, 1830 is rather late for getting to camp/lodge by 1900 bearing in mind the distances involved.

    I have also read that the Mara Conservancy (Triangle) is planning on increasing the park fees sometime this year. This is also likely to mean that the “other” side (i.e. the Narok side) will similarly increase their fees, but I could be wrong. I will keep my ear to the ground.
