Masai Mara accommodation features something for everyone, from safari lodges to game lodges, tented camps and the seasonal mobile camps that sprout up during the great migration.
The profusion of cats and the annual Great Migration that enters the reserve from July to October makes for concentrated wildlife interaction. Combine your visit to the reserve with a stop at the neighbouring private conservancies, where numbers are more controlled and you can enjoy night drives and off-road driving.
Safari Lodges, Game Lodges & Tented Camps in Masai Mara
The Mara River is a river in Kenya’s Narok County and Tanzania’s Mara Region that runs through the Maasai Mara/Serengeti environment and crosses the migration path of ungulates. The Mara River basin spans 13,504 square kilometres, with around 65 percent of it in Kenya and 35 percent in Tanzania.
The Mara Triangle is where the Great Migration herds enter and depart the Masai Mara National Reserve from Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park, giving it a perfect location to witness this incredible wildlife display. The Mara River crossings are among the migration’s most dramatic events, so staying at accomodation in the Mara Triangle will offer you front-row seats to the show.
Masai Mara accommodation in the area is lush and luxurious and includes Masai Mara safari lodges, Masai Mara game lodges and Masai Mara tented camps.
While the Masai Mara National Reserve is the focal point of the Greater Mara Ecosystem, in the last decade there have been a number of conservancies that have been established which border the unfenced national reserve. These conservancies are on private land owned by Maasai families that have been set aside for wildlife conservation and tourism. Masai Mara safari lodges, tented camps and Masai Mara game lodges are the perfect places to stay between all your game viewing activities.
The Ol Kinyei Conservancy, which spans 17,500 acres in the Serengeti-Mara ecosystem, is a piece of former cattle pasture that the Maasai have leased for animal preservation. Ol Kinyei was the first reserve formed inside the Great Maasai Mara Ecosystem, and it is home to around 20 permanent lions, as well as leopards, cheetahs, giraffes, Cape buffalo, a variety of antelope, and elephants.
Wherever you choose to go. Masai Mara accommodation will leave you spoiled for choice with amazing safari lodges, top game lodges and Masai Mara tented camps.
