The key factors to consider that make up the cost of the safari are:
- Park entry fees:To enter any protected area in Kenya like any other country one has to pay an entry fee. For Masai mara, it is unique in that the reserve is community-owned and managed by the locals hence you will not find its park entry fee in Government site Kenya wildlife Services like other national parks. The park entry fee can be paid at the gate or prepaid at the bank in Nairobi before going to the park. It only costs 80$ per person which expires after every 24 hours if they are staying inside the reserve. The park fees paid gives you entitlement to do all the game drives at the park and other activities like birding, nature walks.
- Activities to be done:You will pay extra for private activities like Maasai culture experience, hot air balloon safari, horseback safari, and others. The park entry fees only include game viewing inside the park.
- Accommodation type:There are three levels of accommodations in Masai Mara national reserve, some are inside the reserve while others are not. The key accommodations are Budget tents, mid-range tents, and luxury lodges. You will select the type of accommodation following your proposed budget though we have a partnership with most of the accommodations with contract rates which only our guests enjoy. Other guests must consider the level of accommodation that fits their budget each level of accommodation has its price tag.
