Home to a variety of wildlife, the Masai Mara is the one reserve where you can see all the “Big Five” mammals in a single morning. The Masai Mara stretches out over a flat grassy plain and is most famous for its annual migration of millions of wildebeest.
Photographic opportunities are endless. Many species of wildlife are comfortable with the game viewing vehicles and come up close for the perfect picture.
A visit to a hospitable Masai village gives your Masai Mara safari a cultural edge. The Masai live a traditional way of life in a “Manyatta”, living in simple mud covered straw huts. With over 500 species of bird life and open scenery, the Masai Mara should definitely form part of your Kenyan safari.
We will also visit Lake Nakuru, which is a very shallow and strongly alkaline lake 39 square miles in size. It is set in a picturesque landscape of surrounding woodlands and grasslands next to the town of Nakuru. The landscape includes areas of marsh and grasslands alternating with rocky cliffs and outcrops, stretches of acacia woodland and rocky hillsides covered with forest on the eastern perimeter.
