MASAI MARA

The Masai Mara is a National Reserve in Kenya that borders Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. Masai mara is only 140 miles from Nairobi.

ACCESS TO MASAI MARA

The reserve can be accessed by air or by road. It will take 3 hours by road and 50 minutes by air. The road is all tarmac, but after entering the park, the road is a well-maintained marum road.

MASAI MARA ATTRACTION

This park is one of Africa’s most famous and vital wildlife conservation and wilderness areas known for its wildebeest migration and the big five( leopard, rhino, elephant, buffalo, lion). As a result, Masai Mara is one of Africa’s most visited National reserves.

Vast, rolling plains, seemingly miles of visibility, disclosing dark moving shapes which are, in fact, distant elephants, and tall skinny bodies which, on closer inspection, reveal giraffe necks as they scour tree branches. Kenya is where “safari” was born, and the Masai Mara is, far and away, Kenya’s best. The Mara is huge and alive with animals, birds, and tenacious savannah vegetation. Crosshatched with safari dirt tracks whose route map is known only to the expert driver guides, the Masai Mara is a visual challenge: anywhere you will present a fascinating wildlife drama. “Safari” is Swahili for “travel,” As you safari through the 600 square miles of this protected reserve, your travel takes you through an ancient, elemental world. Prey and predator. Life and death. Nature’s balancing acts play out daily in the savannah, acacia woodlands, and forested riverbanks.

THE BIG FIVE

You’ll hear the phrase “Big 5″ bandied about, and, of course, they’ll top your game viewing list as well: lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and buffalo. The chances are good. You’ll see them all here. And more, much, much more. Wildebeest and zebra in migratory motion, Thomson’s gazelle and eland, hartebeest, topi, ostrich, cheetah, jackal, and hyena – and that’s only a scattering of the ground-level denizens. Eagles soar, vulture circle, secretary birds strut, posture, blue-necked guinea fowl root, hippos, and crocs share an easy riverbed truce – one in noisy, splashing groups, the other as silent statues surviving from prehistoric times.
Nomadic Masai tribe members, grazing their cattle and goats outside the park, present slender scarlet silhouettes. They believe Red is a color feared by predators, and their bravery in protecting their herds is legendary.
Masai women, dazzling in beaded jewelry, carry water, fire fuel, and building wood. Their gender roles are as immutable as the natural ecological patterns they seamlessly fit.

Tours & Safaris

The tours and safaris involve the famous 7th wonder of the world, which is found in Kenya. The impressive wildlife migration is based in Masai mara. Thousands and thousands of wildebeest, followed by other animals, move from Masai Mara National Reserve to Serengeti National Park in TANZANIA. The movement is fantastic, especially at the river crossing point. As the wildebeest jumped into the Mara River, crocodiles waited for a catch as the lions followed the migration. The river is a point of no return; either jump or risk retreating to the lions. The wildlife is too many such that it can take the whole month. Once the wildebeest make a crossing path, they will follow suit till the end. So the tourist is stuck every day watching the game of the crocodile, the wildebeest, and the lions; the opportunist hyena is included.
