Maasai Mara National Reserve

The Mara is magnificent, home to Kenya’s richest concentration of wildlife, and regarded by many travellers as an essential stop on any tour of Africa. When westerners think of Africa and safari, this is place they imagine – golden grassland plains pocked with acacia, wildebeests, zebras, lions, and jackals bound by together by the cycle of life and death. Three days here will only scratch at the surface of the wonders of the Mara. The Annual wildebeest migration from Serengeti in Tanzania into Maasai Mara from June to October- you cant miss this.
