Safari Enquiry

A first-rate Masai Mara safari experience brings together abundant big cat sightings with the chance to see the annual wildebeest migration.

The Masai Mara Reserve is known worldwide for its abundance of cats, portrayed by numerous wildlife documentaries.

The profusion of cats and the annual Great Migration that enters the reserve from July to October makes for concentrated wildlife interaction.

Places like the Musiara Swamp, Rhino Ridge, and Topi Plains are some of the most famous locations. The best places for migration safaris are the banks of the Mara or Talek rivers or the confluence of the two.

Combine your visit to the reserve with a stop at the neighboring private conservancies, where numbers are more controlled and walking safaris, night drives, and off-road driving are allowed.

A Masai Mara safari can be a wonderful experience but disappointing if not well-planned.

Many lodges bring hordes of visitors into the reserve during peak season, from July to the end of September, so get an expert to book somewhere that suits your taste.
