The Masai Mara is one of Safari Africa’s biggest draws and rightly so. Vast rolling grasslands teem with wildlife year round with strong chances of seeing big cats. The area comprises the Masai Mara Reserve and adjoining private conservancies which are unfenced to the main reserve allowing animals to move freely.
Whilst the main reserve can get busy especially during the migration, the adjoining private conservancies offer very light vehicle densities matched with very high wildlife densities, the perfect combination. For an introductory safari, 2-3 nights in the Masai Mara works brilliantly with a week relaxing amidst the white sands of the Kenyan Coast. For a more imersive safari experience we recommend combining a Masai Mara safari with a wilderness camp in the Laikipia region of Kenya where you can bush walk, fly camp and enjoy a greater variety of activities than the more traditional game drives which most camps in the Mara region are limited to.
