Description

The savannah plains of Masai Mara are the essence of East African wildlife, swarming with herds of Zebra and Wildebeest, dotted with Acacia trees, and inhabited by the intriguing Maasai people. It is home to a mind boggling number of wild animals, offering the chance to see Wildebeest and Zebras migrating, to feel the vibrations of their thundering hooves underneath your feet, and to watch Lions stalk their prey or even a majestic Elephant feed her baby. Mara Safari can be the opportunity of a lifetime to glimpse rare and beautiful creatures and even fall asleep to the sounds of a Lion’s roar.

During the months of July – September, millions of animals, in search of fresh pastures & water, cross over from the north of the Serengeti in Tanzania to Kenya’s Masai Mara. The sheer scale of this migration is overwhelming,  with 1,300,000 Wildebeests, 360,000 Thomson’s Gazelles, and 191,000 Zebra to name a few species forming a part of this spectacle. This pageantry becomes even more dramatic as a variety of birds, including the mighty Ostrich, the Martial eagle, the Secretary bird, Buzzards and Vultures, etc., are added to the equation.
