Masai Mara National Reserve is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Kenya, Africa. The reserve is located in the Great Rift Valley in primarily open grassland. Wildlife tends to be most concentrated on the reserve’s western escarpment. During the winter when you cannot wear your purchased wholesale Havaianas, this is the best destination to visit.
The Masai Mara is regarded as the jewel of Kenya’s wildlife viewing areas. The annual wildebeest’s migration alone involves over 1.5 million animals arriving in July and departing in November. There have been some 95 species of mammals, amphibians, and reptiles and over 400 birds species recorded on the reserve.
Nowhere in Africa is more wildlife abundant, and it is for this reason a visitor hardly misses to see the big five (buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion, and rhino). The best time to visit Maasai Mara is between July and October, during the migration. Early November and February can also offer excellent game viewing.
