Located in South West Kenya the Masai Mara is one of the greatest wildlife parks in the world. As an adventure holiday or family trip very little comes close to seeing the Big 5 and experiencing a safari. Take a look at why you should go to the Masai Mara at least once.
One of the best times to visit the Masai Mara is during the great Migration when thousands of animals make their way across land to feeding and breeding grounds.
The spectacle is like nothing else and a highlight of any adventure tour. But the Masai Mara is fabulous at any time of year with hundreds of different species.
There are safaris by jeep and on foot here. Some visitors stay in lodges and others in fixed camps which are quite luxurious. Visitors are likely to see lions, elephants, gazelle, giraffes, rhinos, hippopotamus and much more. Just to see these creatures in their natural habitat is a thrilling experience.
There are also hot air balloon flights over the Masai Mara at dawn; an amazing way to see this wildlife reserve. The Masai Mara is also superb for bird watching too with many different species.
On an adventure holiday like this there will be early starts and even night safaris to see the animals at the best times. You’ll also see the most spectacular sunsets and be able to watch animals as they come to watering holes to drink. Whilst seeing no particular animal is guaranteed, the experience here is out of this world.
Some visitors combine a visit to the Masai Mara with a beach holiday or time in Nairobi the capital of Kenya. A visit to the Masai Mara is the experience of a lifetime. Just remember your camera and binoculars, and you’ll have the time of your life.
