Masai Mara

The Masai Mara Game Reserve is in Southern Kenya measures 1500 sq km mass of rolling plains bordering Tanzania, with a surrounding dispersal area of almost the same. Game is abundant in every area of the Mara. Its habitat is rolling open grassland divided by riverine woodland associated with several small streams and rivers as well as the great Mara River.

At The Mara, it is Warm during the day, cold mornings and evenings, rains in April, May and November.

It offers a wide variety of wildlife of over 450 species of animals. You will easily see lions, rhinos, hippos, crocodiles, giraffe, wildebeests, zebras, buffalo, warthogs, hyenas, jackals, wild dogs, buffalo, leopard, many kinds of antelopes and elephant.

The Mara is home to the annual wildbeast migration, rightly - the Eighth Wonder of the World, a journey of 1,800 miles for the beests. During the outstanding migration, approximately two million wildebeest, zebra and topi make their way to the lush grasslands of the Masai Mara, Tanzania’s Serengeti. The sweeping grass hills further champion the endowed uniqueness. The journey is perilous as large numbers of predators including leopard, lion, cheetah, wild dog and hyena all lie in wait to snatch up their unsuspecting prey whilst the crocodiles lie in wait each year for that first wildebeest to cross the Grumeti and Mara Rivers .

Viewing the sheer magnitude of animals amongst the wildebeest migration, as well as the drama and action this extraordinary natural spectacle provokes, is nothing short of miraculous.

The vast open grass plains, so typically Kenyan, the rivers, the escarpment and the valleys produce one of the most undoubtedly beautiful places on earth. As well as this, the Masai Mara Game Reserve ecosystem hosts the last great concentration of mixed species, plains, wildlife in Africa, and game viewing here as a result is not any other’s equal.
