Highlights of the Masai Mara

Amble along the Masai rivers: The Mara and Telek rivers bring life to the Masai Mara, creating a fertile environment for the most incredible safari viewing in Kenya . In the deeper pools, elephant families gather to cool themselves and hose each other down. Towards the shore, crocodiles bask on flat rocks and sandbars, while rhinos lazily sunbathe in the mud.

Race across the boundless grasslands: This is where you are guaranteed some of the best game viewing in the Masai Mara. Here is the haunt of the cheetah, the fastest animal on the planet, and its favourite dinner, the tail-twitching Thompson’s gazelle. On a rocky outcrop sits a pride of lions, tails swishing, eyes peeled for zebra, belligerent buffalo or baby giraffe as their own cute, furry cubs play-fight among themselves. 

Catch the wildebeest migration: Visit the Masai Mara between July and October for the world-famous spectacle of almost two million wildebeest, zebra and Thompson’s gazelle migrating en masse from the Serengeti in search of greener pastures. All closely followed by lions, cheetahs and leopards hiding in the tall grass...

Float up, up and away: A balloon trip across the Masai Mara gives you a breathtaking bird’s-eye view of the action taking place below. To float over the misty savannah at dawn as the herds and big cats wake up for their breakfast is breathtaking.

Visit a Maasai village: Maasai people live in small settlements of mud huts, living off the meat and milk of their livestock. Rituals and traditions are an integral part of their everyday life, and visiting a Maasai village gives unique insight into their culture.
