Masai Mara

A wildlife rich savannah

The vast rolling plains of the Masai Mara guarantee a spectacular safari experience, particularly on the private conservancies surrounding the national reserve where you can expect greater flexibility and privacy for your game viewing. The Big Five can be found here in abundance, including the majestic black rhino whose numbers once dramatically decreasing are now steadily on the increase.

The Big Five may be East Africa’s poster children, but when you are out on a day or nighttime game drive you should also keep your eyes peeled for signs of hyena, cheetah, jackal, and bat-eared foxes. These predators are just as fascinating, and spotting cubs or pups slinking through the long grasses will be a highlight of your trip.
 
If the focus of your safari is to have a front row seat on the Great Migration — nature’s greatest spectacle — visit the Masai Mara between July and October as millions of wildebeest arrive from the Serengeti in search of fresh pasture. Their predators will be in hot pursuit: prepare to witness the Circle of Life in both its beauty and in individual moments of tragedy.

Accommodation:
Angama Mara
Seemingly suspended in mid-air above the Masai Mara is one of Kenya’s most remarkable lodges: Angama Mara. This striking owner-run property is a place from which to discover the awesome wildlife of the Mara, witness the Great Migration and meet the Maasai who live in this unique environment.
Accommodation:
Mara Plains Camp
In the heart of the 35,000 acre Olare Motorogi Conservancy lies Mara Plains Camp. Access is over a bridge across the river, and when you cross it feels as if you are entering a private kingdom, a world apart from the norm.
