Masai Mara Safari

A Masai Mara Safari delivers the quintessential East African experience specially Kenya Safari Tours experience. Its tented camps overlook sprawling plains studded with acacia trees and grazing antelope. Red-robed Maasai herdsmen tend their cattle on the savannah, co-existing with the wildlife and celebrating their passage into manhood with the famous ‘jumping dance’.

And from June to November the biggest show on earth arrives: the migration – over a million wildebeest returning to the Masai Mara from the Serengeti. Forced across the crocodile-filled rivers that stand in their way, the herds provide a thrilling spectacle of nature at its rawest. Back in the Masai Mara, the wildebeest face the attention of more predators – big cats, spotted hyenas and wild dogs – making it one of Africa’s must-see destinations for safari travellers.

But you don’t have to visit the Masai Mara in migration season to guarantee a memorable safari. Its abundant resident wildlife provides year-round game viewing while out-of-migration-season travellers enjoy the advantage of fewer other visitors, lower accommodation prices and a lush and green landscape.

The Masai Mara is a safari destination with broad appeal. Activities range from game drives and cultural tours to hot-air balloon safaris. Honeymooners and couples will love the Mara’s more intimate and exclusive camps; parents will be pleased to find camps with babyminders, activities for children, and 4-sleeper family suites.

During the migration months, when visitor numbers are highest, we recommend beating the crowds by staying at a Masai Mara concession. The privately-run reserves are home to excellent accommodation and offer everything the Masai Mara Safari delivers plus night drives, nature walks and exclusive, off-road wildlife sightings.

Why Go On A Masai Mara Safari?

The Masai Mara National Reserve and its neighbouring conservancies form Kenya’s flagship conservation area and one of the top safari destinations in Africa. Its wide-open plains provide a sanctuary for an abundance of animals like elephant, buffalo, zebra, giraffe, hyena and the Mara’s famous big cats: lion, leopard and cheetah. And from about June to November every year, the Mara is a much-welcomed pit stop for unending masses of wildebeest that follow the rains on their death-defying, 2 900-kilometre (1 800-mile) circular journey.
