I am the low-budget backpacker. Regardless of my income level, this is the style of travel I most prefer because it gives me the greatest cultural immersion and the biggest opportunity to meet locals and get a real sense of what life is like in a totally foreign coun...
Can't Go to Kenya Without Visiting the Masai Mara!
Written on: January 20, 2014
I visited in June 2010
I visited the Masai Mara on a college course trip. Our safari consisted of two nights sleeping in beds within canvas tents. There was a toilet and a shower in each tent, and even electricity in the evening until 10pm when the generators abruptly cut off. But, it was more than enough when you're in the middle of the Serengeti grasslands and you have the most beautiful, bright stars I've ever seen to embrace without the light pollution electricity offers.
Our safari consisted of two parts; one full day safari where we were bumping along the dirt roads in the Masai Mara, spotting fantastic animals such as zebras, giraffes, and even a lioness sitting amongst the grass. The next day, we awoke and were ready in the vans at sunrise, to do an early morning halfday safari. This is a fantastic opportunity since many animals are quite active in the morning time. This day, we saw a baby elephant with its momma and herd. Our safari guide, who was very friendly, humorous and knowledgeable, informed us that he felt the baby was only hours old as he wobbled around on his gangly legs. It was quite a site to see! And the herd crunching and munching on the leaves was equally as awe-striking to hear.
Overall, taking a safari in the Masai Mara will give you that quintessential safari experience you think of when you think of an African safari. Doing a grasslands safari is something you can't miss when in East Africa. It will definitely create lifelong memories and is a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

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...

If having a few days to Africa/Kenya and you would wish to have a wild experience then you will not go wrong with 3 or 4 days to Maasai Mara. You will have a chance to do the game drives with 90% assurance of seeing all the BIG five, most of the wildlife and many bird specie--not forgetting the wildebeest migration if you visit between the months of July and Octobe...
