Abraham Talam, Thomas Cherewa, Christopher Kipsang and Silas Yego denied the charges before senior resident magistrate Rose Ndombi.
They were charged that between July 14 and 16 they entered into the national reserve without the authority of the KWS.
The four were also charged with killing a female elephant and escaping away with its tusks.
They were remanded for investigations to be completed.
The case will be mentioned on August 6.
The hearing is on August 23.
