Lodge Safari in Kenya

Masai Mara National Reserve is a pristine wilderness of haunting beauty. It promises its visitors a profusion of wildlife, prolific birdlife, and the unprecedented opportunity of catching up with all the members of the 'Big Five' in one morning. The 1,800 sq kilometers of this veteran reserve offers the classic mix of African imagery; miles of lion-gold grasslands, shoals of lilac-misted hills, a meandering river, acres of thorn-bush, and mile upon mile of undulating wilderness. An impressive feature is an annual migration of wildebeest, zebra, and gazelle from the plains of the Serengeti that cross the Tanzania border and rivers to reach the Mara lush grassland from late June, hunted by the predators such as lion, and hyena and are circled by vultures as the journey unfolds. Their dramatic river crossings are a reality for tourists visiting in July-August. Apart from the seasonal migration, game viewing is excellent year-round. The games include elephants, black rhinos, buffalo, big cats, and virtually every animal found in Kenya. The rivers are home to hippos and crocodiles. 452 bird species are recorded including 53 raptors, buzzards, vultures, and eagles.
