I visited in August 2012
The Masai Mara and Serengeti are essentially the same place, separated by the colonial rulers drawing of national boundaries 100 odd years ago. Following recommendations I went to the Mara Triangle, the north western third of the park, separated from the rest by the Mara River. Beneath the backdrop of Volcanic Hills it certainly felt less crowded than I would have expected. Gazelle and zebra were everywhere, and as dusk approached we saw a cheetah on an unsuccessful hunt.
The following morning brought lions. Perhaps it was luck, but we saw five different packs on one game drive. Beside a river, a whole herd of hippos was struggling to decide on what to do, grunting at each other and moving off in different directions before meeting at the same river. Wildebeest occasionally popped up, frighteningly thin and looking unlikely to survive long. But most impressive was how quiet it all felt. With the grasslands seemingly continuing forever, I often felt huge pangs of insignificance.
For a two day safari the Masai was an impressive as the Serengeti. Although, I feel the Serengeti’s greater size affords far more opportunity for multiday safaris. Yes, it’s incredibly expensive, but this ecosystem is a freak of nature, and if you divided animals by dollars it’s worth every single one…

For years I have visited Maasai Mara and it get better with time like wine, the view is amazing and the wildlife viewing is superb throughout the year.
It is quite easy to see the lions, leopards and cheetahs.
The yearly wildebeest migration is another attraction which many tourist come to Kenya to witness this amazing wonder of the world.

Been to the Maasai Mara countless times and every time the Mara offers a new experience. The most thrilling activity here has to be the great wildebeest migration. So definitely my first stop has always been the Mara Triangle, anytime between July and December.
However, this doesn't mean that there is no much activity during other months! My favorite stops any ...

What a fabulous reserve. On our first day we saw the big 5 including lions with a kill then coming down to drink at a stream and a male lion roaring while looking for his pride. 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...
