The Masai Mara is located 270km/167mi northwest of Nairobi. The road is notoriously bad and the driving time is about five hours. Most people fly to the park.

It is however also possible to drive from Lake Nakuru NP. The distance is about 235km/150mi and the driving time is roughly six hours.

If you are getting here by road, note that from Narok (the last major town you pass through) there’s roughly half an hour of tarmac road, and then two hours bumping along bad to terrible dirt roads to get into the park.

Getting to Nairobi is easy, as the city is a major African transport hub. International arrivals usually land at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO), 15km/9mi southeast of Nairobi. From Nairobi, it’s easy to catch a domestic flight to Masai Mara
