Trip to the Masai Mara Reserve

You will surely find elephants, zebras, lions, or leopards in your local zoo, but it doesn’t have the spectacle of millions of migrating wildebeests and grazers with predators chasing them. With 1,510 square km of open fertile riverside woodlands and savannahs, located in southwestern Kenya, Masai Mara is one of the premier national parks in Africa. Traveling to the Masai Mara Reserve not only offers a riveting wildlife experience but it also provides an insight into the native Masai culture.

Teeming with diverse wildlife like impala, hartebeest, topis, spotted hyena, grey jackals, warthogs, baboons, giraffe, wildebeest, and bat eared foxes, the Masai Mara is the ideal place for wildlife photographers as well as the avid wildlife enthusiasts. The reserve is home to Large Cats like lions, leopards, and cheetahs, as well as other animals including zebras, hippos, buffaloes, and elephants.

Visit the Mara Triangle and witness the Great Migration of thousands of grazing animals from Serengeti in the month of July. If you visit the reserve in November, you will observe the herbivores returning south by travelling across the Mara river.
