According to Kenya Information Guide, the Masai Mara National Reserve is one of the best places where you can spot wildlife in Africa. Not only is the park home to the Big Five species but it hosts the great wildebeest migration river crossings as well as over 400 different birds species.

Game drives and walking safaris are just some of the ways that travellers can use to marvel at the abundance of flora and fauna on the show. One of the best ways to experience it is by flying over the Masai Mara in a hot air balloon. This is what you can expect on your Kenya safari.
