Masaai Mara National Park

Masaai Mara National Park

Overview

Crossed by Mara and Talek rivers, the Masaai Mara National Reserve is considered the most spectacular safari game viewing ecosystem of the world. Straddling a colossal 1,510 sq km (580 sq miles) and perched 1,500-2,170 meters above the sea level the park is home to over 95 species of mammals and over 570 recorded species of avifauna.

Teeming with wildlife around the year , and with the grasslands framed by rolling hills and riverlets, the park is a compendium of breathtaking vistas and a photographer's and naturalist’s paradise. Lions, leopards, giraffes, rhinos, zebras, antelopes, gnus etc can be observed in their natural habitat during the game drives. You can visit the villages and interact with the Masaai people, watch them sing and dance in their vibrant attires. Ride in a hot air balloon to get a once in a lifetime experience of the magnificent aerial view of the terrain, the flora, and the fauna and the never-ending horizon. If you are visiting in July or August, you can witness one of the world's most spectacular and perilous wildlife events, the game of life and death! Over a million wildebeests, thousands of zebras, gazelles etc migrate from Serengeti to Masaai following the beat of nature's cycle attempting to cross the Mara river swarming with crocodiles. It's an awe-inspiring sight and only nature decides who survives. Stay at a camp close to the river crossing for maximum viewing time.
