Maasai Mara National Reserve: Known for the Great Migration of wildebeest and zebras.

Maasai Mara National Reserve provides you with an incredible adventure on Africa’s true gem of untamed wilderness. The Mara is renowned for the great migration, where thousands if not millions of wildbeasts, zebras, gazelles, and other wildlife roam the plains for survival. From July to October every year, the Mara attracts not just wildlife enthusiasts but also commands the instincts of predators like wild dogs, hyenas, lions, leopards, and cheetahs, providing thrilling game-viewing moments. Maasai Mara’s diverse ecosystem scampers with life all year round and has become a haven for different species of birds and the iconic Big Five animals. Enjoy the culture of the Maasai people who coexist harmoniously with the surroundings. Experience our executive tented camps, sunrise balloon safaris, and guided game drives, all made to offer you the best taste of savanna wilderness. Maasai Mara offers a spectacular safari adventure, blending nature, excitement, and culture in one of the best landscapes on Earth.
