I visited in August 2013
The 14 hour drive to Masai Mara National Park through the Great Rift Valley was certainly worth it despite the wretched, pot hole riddled, dusty, dangerous, back country tracks that you could ever imagine. On our way to the park were the cultured Masai people who live in mud huts, and who also practice pastoralism. Their cattle are enclosed within a fence that is made from sharp thorn bushes to provide protection from the lions that roam around during the night.
In Maasi Mara, my friends and I enjoyed the game drives, camping, walks, and most of all what is now known today in the world as the “eighth wonder”. It was really an amazing experience to see all those millions of wildebeest immigrating, which usually happens once every year as they move north to the Serengeti National Park. It’s the most staggering experience seeing some of the wildebeest being taken down while crossing the Mara River by the crocodiles. Here, you clearly see nature taking its course as the animals try to survive the immigration, bringing a reality of “survival for the fittest”.
From the Masai people, wildlife, to the scenery, the trip was well worth it and will forever be etched in my mind. I did not regret any minute of it.

Couldn't have asked for more. It was fantastic and our guide was just wonderful. Antonio was very knowledgeable and ethical in regard to the welfare of the animals and obeying the rules of...

The Mara is a relatively small park. If visited in the off-peak seasons, you can access a very wide variety of animals. Having visited it many times over the last 30 years, I have never been disappointed.
This year a group of aspiring photographers and I were also treated to an unusually late and breathtaking migration crossing. The scene lasted just a few minut...

We made a safari to Maasai Mara and We enjoyed all the incredible animals, getting to see the Big Five plus numerous others.

Masai Mara is truly a must-see destination with stunning scenery, abundant and varied wildlife, and an incredible sense of authenticity thanks to the Masai involvement. We highly recommend taking a balloon safari (we used Balloon Safaris Ltd.) as it was a highlight of our trip. Our Australian pilot spotted a huge male lion and a family of five cheetah among the he...
