Maasai Mara National Reserve - 3 Days

mara 1

Maasai Mara National Reserve (also “Masai Mara”) is one of the world’s most magnificent game reserves. Bordering Tanzania, the Mara is the northern extension of the Serengeti and forms a wildlife corridor between the two countries. It’s named after the statuesque, red-cloaked Maasai people who live in the park and graze their animals here as they have done for centuries. In their language, Mara means “mottled,” perhaps a reference to the play of light and shadow from the acacia trees and cloud-studded skies on the vast grasslands.

The park is famous for the Great Migration, when thousands of wildebeest, zebra, and Thomson’s gazelle travel to and from the Serengeti, from July through October. In the Mara River, throngs of hippos and crocodiles lurk. The park is also known for providing excellent predator sightings, thanks to its relatively large populations of lion, cheetah, and leopard – especially in the dry months from December through February. Thanks to the park’s altitude, the weather here is mild and gentle year-round.

This Safari will kick off from Nairobi to the world cup of wildlife, the Masai Mara National Reserve via the Great Rift Valley which offers spectacular views. On arrival at the Masai Mara Park, you will spend your time in search of the big five among other wild animals. The Masai Mara is the most popular destination in the world especially due to the annual wildebeest’s migration which involves over 1.5 million animals arriving in July to October. This migration is wildlife spectacular like none other on earth.

The wildlife adventure of these 3 days Masai Mara ends back in Nairobi on the last day.
