MAASAI MARA NATIONAL PARK SAFARI

Kenya

The Masai Mara is one of the best known and most popular reserves in the whole of Africa. At times and in certain places it can get a little overrun with tourist vehicles. Seasoned safari travelers, travel writers, documentary makers and researchers often admit that the Maasai Mara is one of their favorite places. The open Savannah, the annual wildebeest migration, the density of game, the variety of birdlife and the chance of a hot air balloon ride make Masai Mara a number one destination in Africa.

The Masai Mara lies in the Great Rift Valley and is full of wildebeest, zebra, impala, topi, giraffe, Thomson's gazelle. Also regularly seen are leopards, lions, hyenas, cheetah, jackal and bat-eared foxes. Black rhino are a little shy and hard to spot but are often seen at a distance. The Mara River with lush grassland and acacia woodlands support masses of game especially migrating wildebeest.

WHY VISIT THE MASAI MARA?

The Maasai Mara is Kenya’s most famous national reserve that runs along the country south-west border, just across the border from Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park. This gigantic ecosystem is shared by the two countries and protected with a combination of national reserves and community-run conservation areas. The Mara is best known for the annual Great Migration of millions of wildebeest and zebra.

The Maasai Mara offers a wide choice of accommodation, ranging from tented camps to luxurious lodges. Some are located within the borders of the national park, while others are on conservancies that surround the park. Those located on private conservancies offer the added lure of activities not allowed within the park itself, including night drives, nature walks, off-road driving and the opportunity to enjoy dining out in the bush.

The reserves are not fenced, meaning that game moves freely between the reserves and the conservancies, creating one vast wildlife area. During winter (June to September) and the migration months, the Maasai Mara becomes very busy and wildlife sightings become very crowded, with vehicles gathering for a lion kill or potential river crossing. During the quieter summer months and the green season (when there are heavy rains, particularly between March and June), the reserve is much quieter and visitors feel as though they have the Maasai Mara to themselves.

WHY VISIT KENYA

Kenya is known as the safari capital of the world because of its amazing wildlife, beaches, birds and weather. Visitors to Kenya are spoiled for choice - you can choose to visit any or all of the twenty three national parks or the thirteen national reserves.

Millions of travelers go to Kenya to witness the Great Migration or chase the Big Five. The ‘Big 5’ – the elephant, rhinoceros, lion, leopard, and cape buffalo – can all be found in Kenya’s parks, with other popular animals such as the giraffe, cheetah, and zebras. Kenya is a great country for a day safari or a multi-park tour. Headlined by the world renowned Masai Mara National Park, some of its parks located mere hours from the city center.

In addition to the opportunity to see some of Africa most iconic animals in their natural habitat, Kenya also offers visitors the chance to go on cultural safaris. The Maasi culture tours are rated as the best culture tours by thousands of travelers.
