that stretch from western Kenya into the Serengeti plains in Tanzania.
We can take you here.
Game Reserve is famous for the annual wildebeest migration and
large prides of lions. The Masai Mara's altitude is above 5.000
ft. It yields a climate milder and damper than in other regions.
The grassy landscape and the nutrient wealth for the great herds
are maintained by the abundant rains that start from November
through June, as a fusion of the two rain seasons (long and short)
typical in other areas of Kenya. In the hills and plains, grasslands
are scattered with acacia trees, thick bushes, and shrubs. The
Masai Mara landscape is subdivided with narow ravines that provide
a perfect breading ground for lions.
reserve was established in 1961 and is located west of the Great
Rift Valley. The Masai Mara is extension of the Serengeti plains
in Tanzania. The Mara River, the reserve's backbone, traverses
north to south heading for its westbound way into Lake Victoria,
through the Serengeti National Park. This course is the natural
barrier crossed every year by the large migratory herds of wildebeests
and zebras, which march across the two parks. Nearly two million
wildebeest and 500,000 zebras move in a quest for the best pastures,
finding along the way the crocodile-crowded river.
peak season starts from July to October, where seasonal visitors
come to witness the wildebeest migration. The reserve supports
many of Africa’s most popular wild animals, including, lion,
cheetah, hyena, elephant, leopard, black rhino, buffalo, and hippos.
the Masai Mara is a bird lover’s paradise! There are over
500 resident species of birds in the park including ostrich, secretary
bird, marabou stork, larks and sunbirds as well as the Lilac-breasted
roller. Morning and afternoon game drive will offer spectacular
wildlife- viewing opportunities!
You can go on a balloon safari experience over the Masai Mara
as the early morning sun rises and the animals are more active.
