Enter a new world on this wildlife safari. Mara is a Maasai word for spotted. From the air, the visual effect of the Mara thickets looks like spots hence the name of Masai Mara Game Reserve. The Maasai Mara is one of its kind with wildebeest migration, the seventh wonder of the world, happening in July through September. And also this is the home of all the Big Five, the lion, the African Elephant, rhino, Cape Buffalo and African Leopard. Rightly named not because of their size but because each of these animals were highly poached. Some for their horns believed to be aphrodisiac whilst others for their skin. Whatever the reason, the Maasai Mara has continued to be a safe haven for these animals.
A day in the Maasai Mara can also be spend with the Maasai people with their rich heritage, still holding tight to their traditions. A day spent with them will be forever engraved in your hearts for these are a special people. The Masai Mara boasts more than 450 species of birds which includes raptors. This park is home to astonishing number of animals, umbrella-shaped trees, the beautiful sunsets, the winding Mara River and the rugged Ololoolo Escarpment. Here you will enjoy exotic experience of hot air balloon gracefully drifting above the Mara River and the game rich African Savannah.
