This wonderful game reserve is located in south-western part of Kenya, bordering the world famous Serengeti eco-system. It truly is Kenya's finest wildlife sanctuary and one of the best in the whole of Africa. The wildlife is abundant and the gentle rolling grasslands ensure that animals are never out of sight. Birds too are prolific, including migrant birds and birds of prey.
The climate is gentle, rarely too hot and well-spread rainfall year round. Between July and October, when the annual Great Wildebeest Migration takes place, the Mara is a stage of unparalleled wildlife sensation. Approximately 1.2 Million wildebeest and zebra enter the Mara around the end of June, drawn by the sweet grass, raised by the long rains of April and May.The Migration lasts until end of October or even November. Experiencing the sheer mass of wildlife & predators is truly an unimaginable experience.
Once the Mara grass has been devoured and when fresh rain in Tanzania has brought forth a new flush there, the herds turn south, heading back to Serengeti and the Ngorongoro plains. There the young are dropped in time to grow sufficiently strong to undertake the long march north six months later.
Another excellent feature are the local Maasai that have lived since centuries in harmony with the wildlife. One can visit a traditional Maasai Village to learn more about their culture.
The Mara is a fantastic destination to visit all year round - one is simply guaranteed unique and exciting game viewing. If one wants to see the big cats, I would certainly recommend the Mara Game Reserve as it has some of the best leopard and lion sightings in the world.

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...

The adventure in Masai Mara was so great and with the best part so far for view the wildlife. You have great camps to stay at, too (Governors main camp, Little governor, II Moran) just to mention few. read more
