Masai Mara Safari
The Masai (also known as Maasai) Mara Conservation area is the world’s ultimate safari destination – it is huge, diverse, has high animal density and has a variety of safari options to meet everyone’s needs.
The area is a reflection of what untouched Africa looked like in pre-colonial days, but fortunately it is now accessible to the 21st century traveller in such a way that you can observe without affecting. All this is two hours by air from Nairobi International airport or five by road.
The Kenyan Maasai Mara is an extension of Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park, making this area a free roaming wildlife wilderness larger than many European countries.
Not only does the Maasai Mara host the annual migration of over two million animals crossing the Mara River in a Darwinian drive for survival, it is also the home of the Maasai tribe. This sets the canvas for safaris of a lifetime. But to maximise the experience you need to ensure that you have professional guidance.
Fortunately Kenya has a number of long established and respected safari and tour operators that can guide you through this wonderland regardless of how much time or money that you have. The lion stalking the zebra or the crocodile lying in wait for the migrating wildebeest will do what they are genetically programmed to do regardless of your wallet or status – but the question is will you be at the right place at the right time to witness it? Let us be the right professionals to guide you on a memorable Masai Mara Safari.
