Maasai Mara National Reserve is an outstanding and one of Kenya's finest wildlife reserves with abundant wildlife and birds. Between July and October, you can see the great wildebeest migration. Maasai Mara National Reserve is one of the best plains' game reserves where you can actually encounter a live Discovery Channel, a haven for viewing a congregation of all sorts of animals in a five-mile radius.

A pride of lions can be spotted ready to make a run for a gazelle, cheetahs and its cub taking a nap on a rock, and a pair of ostriches walking the open stretches of the savannah. The Maasai Mara National Reserve is 1510 square kilometers of incredible wide-open landscapes and fertile riverine woodland following the looping meanders of the Mara and Talek Rivers in Kenya. One glimpse is enough to explain its appeal. It is a typical open savannah with a mass of amazing wildlife.

Moreover, Maasai Mara National Reserve remains the most exciting wildlife ecosystem in the natural world. It is host to the highest and most varied concentration of wild animals than any other wildlife park in the region. The scenic appeal of the tree-studded savannah plains, the moderate climate, and the diversity of wild game species make it a one-stop shop for game-viewing activities.

Wherever you go in the vast of Maasai Mara National Reserve, you will see a frequent amount of wildlife such as the Maasai's giraffes, baboons, warthogs, bat-eared foxes, gray jackals, spotted hyenas, topis, impalas, hartebeests, and wildebeests. Elephants, buffaloes, zebras, and hippos are also found in great numbers. It is also common to see lions either basking after a heavy meal or surveying the plains for their next meal. Cheetahs and leopards are harder to spot but reasonably common.

Note: It's advisable (although not a must) to ask as many questions as possible. You are also suggested always be in possession of your valuable items or declare them for safekeeping.


You will be provided with daily breakfast, lunch, dinner, and one liter of bottled water while on the safari. The food on this safari is delicious and ranges from simple to gourmet. You can expect lots of fresh fruits and vegetables as well as wonderful homemade soups. Chicken, lamb, beef, or pork is usually served at lunch and dinner as well as fish and vegetarian dishes.

Breakfast is a buffet with lots of tropical fruits, hot and cold cereals, bacon, sausages, mushrooms, bread and pastries, and eggs to order. Lunch can be either a buffet or served on the table and always starts with soup. Dinner is usually a 4 or 5-course sit-down affair although there is no need to dress up.
