What You Need To Know
Maasai Mara is a national reserve that is located in the southern border of Kenya and Tanzania. The reserve is adjacent to Serengeti national reserve which is within the Tanzanian side of the border. It has an exceptional climate which is generally warm during the day and cooler in the mornings and in the evenings. Its animals include hippos, lions, cheetahs, elephants and zebras.
Some things you should know before you travel for a luxury safari to Maasai Mara are:
Park fee is 80 USD per adult, per day and is valid for 24hrs.
45 USD per child older than 3 years
Children under 3 years are free of charge
It’s also good to take a camera and binoculars.
Consider visiting the Maasai Mara during the great wildebeest migration between July and October. Alternatively, visiting during mid or low season might provide a ‘quieter’ safari experience.
The temperature in Maasai Mara ranges between 79F(26C) to 82F(28C) in September through May. Because of the favorable weather conditions in the Maasai Mara, it is an ideal destination for a wonderful experience, because of the grasslands in the Serengeti and the rich wetlands around the Mara river. The high season is between July to October. During this time, the most exciting experience is the wildebeest migration from Maasai Mara to Serengeti across Mara river. The low season is between April and May, which leaves the months between November and March as the mid season. This can be the best time to visit the Mara if you are looking for a luxury and quiet safari without the usual overcrowding during the high seasons.

Popular Luxury Safari in the Maasai Mara
Each of our popular itineraries can be tailor-made to suit your budget as well as your specific interests.
Safari lodges have guest rooms similar to a hotel with en-suite bathrooms. They are comfortably furnished with facilities normally associated with a hotel rooms, except your rooms are normally set in beautiful wilderness settings, with nature and wildlife around.
Tented lodges have rooms which are tents on a platform and with a roof and also have en-suite facilities with showers, flush toilets and hot water. Basically all the amenities of a hotel room, except canvas walls and roof.
The boutique lodges and camps can be very stylish and smart in terms of design and decor, often with very spacious rooms and even going so far in some cases as having plunge pools for each room.
Eco-camps and smaller tented camps have insect-proof tents with en-suite facilities including a safari shower and flush toilet. They give a more authentic safari experience but the tents are comfortably furnished with proper beds and you don’t need to bring your own sleeping bag! The emphasis is usually on having excellent guides and great wildlife viewing away from the crowds. Guests often eat together and people travelling alone usually say that they found the atmosphere friendly and enjoyed meeting other like-minded travellers around the campfire in the evening or at dinner.
The Adventure Camps are a budget option with guests bringing their own sleeping bags and towels. Accommodation is in small dome tented with a mattress on the floor. Each tent has its own nearby cubicle with a flush toilet, safari shower, and wash basin. The Adventure Camps are suitable only for those who don’t mind “real camping” and can put with some degree of “roughing it”. Apart from the accommodation in simple dome tents, the meals and the guiding are the same standards as the higher quality camps and game drives are in 4x4 safari vehicles. For those on a limited budget, the Adventure Camps are a good alternative to the big tourist lodges and minibus tours for those for whom the safari experience is more important than hotel accommodation.
South African travelers are exempt from obtaining visas for many African countries, however visa requirements are vastly different from country to country so it's strongly advised to do your research before travel to avoid disappointment.
