The most iconic wildlife destination of East Africa, no safari experience in this part of the world is complete without a visit to the Masai Mara.  The setting for the film ‘Out of Africa’, the Masai Mara is home to the largest concentration of wildlife on earth and sets the stage for the annual dramatic migration of thousands of wildebeest, plains game and eager predators, presenting phenomenal wildlife photography opportunities.  Open spaces as far as the horizon stretches, magically filled with African Reds at sunset, countless hooves and paws dusting up golden grasslands, the Big 5 in action and the jumping red-robed Masai tribe. This is the place to experience the rhythm and culture of East Africa at it’s best, and the ultimate classic African safari. The finest luxury safari lodges and tented camps offer exquisite experiences and comforts in this wild & beautiful destination for an unforgettable African safari holiday of a lifetime.

WHEN TO GO?

The Masai Mara still delivers an outstanding game viewing experience throughout the year, due to it’s temperate climate and vast open plains, but the best time to witness the great migration in full force is July/August/September. However do be aware that the migration timings are not set in stone and do vary from year to year depending on rain fall patterns. If you are hoping to see the migration book well in advance as lodges and camps do get booked early.

TOP ACTIVITIES

Whether you take a night drive, do a guided nature walk, a game drive or fly high over the plains in a hot-air balloon, Masai Mara promises a life-enriching African journey at any time of year. For the great migration mobile tented camps are set up to maximise the game viewing experience. Masai tribesmen also play a big part in a visit to the Mara, showing Masai hospitality in their villages and a glimpse of their ancient cultural traditions.

WHERE NEXT?

Although great as a stand-alone destination, we recommend visiting more of Kenya‘s parks and reserves to give you the ultimate safari experience; Amboseli National Park or Aberdare National Park. With good connections, charter flight routes and regional flights it is also easy to make your stay a beach & bush experience by visiting the spectacular beaches and islands along Kenya’s magnificent coast.
