Introduction

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.

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.

When to go

​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.

Walking shoes

Warm clothing

Swimming costume

Hat

Semi-formal attire

Weather and Climate

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.
