The Magical Masai Mara

The World Famous Masai Mara is an Award Winning National Reserve in the heart of Kenya, famed for its abundance of wildlife and rich culture.

No trip to Kenya is complete without a visit to the Masai Mara.  It is perhaps one of the most well known places in the world associated with the word 'Safari!'

The Masai Mara is a National Reserve as the Masai people live alongside the wildlife and are permitted to graze their livestock within the reserve.  An unforgettable sight is the Masai dressed in their red 'shuka' or blanket, trailing behind huge herds of cattle, the dust lingering in the air as they turn and head off into the sunset.

The Masai Mara is undoubtedly one of the most fascinating destinations in the world, endless grass plains teeming with wildlife, encircled by towering mountains and rock kopjes all make for some very exciting game drives.  This park is adjoined in the south to the Serengeti in neighbouring Tanzania and together they make up part of a very diverse ecosystem.
