The park lies in Central Kenya, 140 kilometers north-west of Nairobi, in Nakuru district of the Rift Valley Province. The ecosystem comprises of the lake, surrounded by mainly wooded and bushy grasslands. The park supports a wide ecological diversity with flamingos (greater and lesser) and other water birds being the major attractions of the area.
The ecosystem provides for about 56 different species of mammals including the white rhino, buffaloes, and a variety of terrestrial birds numbering nearly 450 species. The park has up to one and a half million flamingos plus 450 other species of birds. Fauna includes Thompson’s and Grant’s gazelle, the rare long-eared leaf-nosed bat, colobus monkey, rock hyrax, and hippos.
With its rolling hills, dense riverine forests, hills, and a high, flat-topped escarpment that forms its western boundary, this wildlife conservation area takes up an area of 1,510 square kilometers in south western Kenya and shares an international border with Tanzania’s fabled Serengeti National Park.
It is owned and managed by the Maasai people who, because of their traditional respect for wildlife during the course of hundreds of years of their continued co-existence, they have ensured that the wildlife splendor of the Maasai Mara exists today.
While this reserve is home to over 410 species of birds and 60 species of raptors, it is also one of the world’s finest game viewing destinations. This is because it plays host to an abundance of every form of wildlife possible except for those few species which can only be seen north of the Equator.
Not only this, but the reserve is also world famous for its annual migration of literally millions of wildebeest, not to mention tens of thousands of zebras and gazelles, when they annually migrate north from the Serengeti, usually between July or early August to October, to find food.
To access the reserve’s lush grazing, they first have to cross the Mara River with its battalions of enormous and hungry crocodiles and, if you are lucky enough to watch one of these crossings, it is an event you will never forget.
You will be provided with daily breakfast, lunch, dinner, and drinking water during this safari.
Please book your flight to arrive at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO). Transfer from and to the airport is included. East Cape Tours will pick you up from the airport.
