The 1 800 sq kilometers of this veteran reserve offers a 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. Game viewing in the Masai Mara is excellent all year round thanks to the diverse population of resident game, including the Big Five plus popular species like zebra, giraffe, hyena, eland, and gazelle. In addition, Masai Mara’s big cats are stars in a wildlife TV series. You will enjoy an afternoon game viewing as an introduction to the park.

Games drives in Masai Mara National Reserve
You will enjoy a full day in Masai Mara National Reserve with morning and afternoon game drives. Masai Mara National Reserve offers Africa's best opportunities to see cheetahs and lions. In addition, visiting this reserve in July will allow you the best chance to watch firsthand as thousands of wildebeest migrate across the swollen crocodile-infested Mara River. This migration is one of nature's most remarkable wildlife spectacles. The sheer number of wildebeest arriving in the area is staggering. The migration is a dramatic mass movement of almost two million wildebeest, zebras, and gazelles in a seasonal, annual cycle driven by rainfall. Wildebeest make dramatic river crossings and face enormous crocodiles to reach the new grazing fields and regain their strength. November's short rains trigger the last leg of the migration when the wildebeest move south to Serengeti. You will return to the tented camp for dinner and your overnight stay.
