Sand River Gate in Masai Mara

The Sand river gate is located on the northern banks of the Sand river, one of the tributaries for the Mara river as well as a crossing point for the wildebeest migration. It also sits on the southern border of masai mara national reserve, a few metres from the border between Kenya and Tanzania as well as the Bologonja gate into serengeti national park. Due to the nearby border between Kenya and Tanzania being closed to tourists, the gate is seldom used, with most using the Isebania border instead.
