Millions of animals on the move

The Masai Mara is the perfect gateway, where you get to see millions of animals on the move. If you are interested in seeing ‘Africa’s Big Five,’ in their natural environment, then a Masai Mara Safari holiday is the most ideal for you. Not only do you get to see the lion, but also the red-robed Masai warriors make daring but well calculated advances in the quintessential African scenery.

The Masai Mara National Reserve is a designated wild conservancy area in Kenya, and it borders Tanzania’s Serengeti and together they form the famous migration. If you are a wildlife enthusiast and a nature photographer, the dramatic migration of wildebeests, gazelles and zebras in large numbers is utterly irresistible. While in the Masai Mara, accommodation is the last thing you should worry about considering that there are abundant child-friendly accommodation services as well exclusive lodges in tucked-away scenes, a perfect choice for honeymoon in the wild.

In planning for a Safari to the Masai Mara, timing is of essence so that you can catch the migration at its peak, although game viewing is excellent all year round. To make your experience more memorable, there are private conservancies within the Masai Mara where you get to enjoy guided night game drives and nature walks. Also, you can opt for hot-air balloon safaris as well as cultural interactions with the ever-friendly local Masai communities in the serene African setting.
