Masai Mara: one of the world’s greatest safari destinations
A Masai Mara safari is an unmissable highlight of any holiday in Kenya holiday. There are breathtaking panoramas in every direction, a vast range of wildlife including the Big Five and a rich cultural heritage to explore. Kenya’s Masai Mara is without doubt one of the greatest safari destinations in Africa.
Between July and October things get busy in the Great Rift Valley. Millions of zebra and wildebeest make the perilous crossing across the Masai Mara in search of new grazing territory. And in their wake comes a veritable horde of predators including lion and leopard.
While sightings cannot be guaranteed, our specialist guides and long-standing local connections ensure that our clients are usually never far from the action during Africa’s most iconic natural spectacle.
The Masai Mara in Kenya is one of the best places in Africa to spot the Big Five. Elephant, lion, leopard, rhino and Cape buffalo roam the reserve’s rolling hills of grass, woodland and riverine bush. It’s worth looking up too, as almost 60 species of birds of prey patrol the skies.
Safari camps such as Sanctuary Olonana, Naibor Camp and Kicheche offer a superb level of service. They also offer exceptional game-viewing opportunities. And each night here closes around the campfire, as you swap stories before tucking into your freshly prepared African cuisine. That’s Masai Mara safari executed in style.
