3 Days : Masai Mara Wildebeest Migration
Go wild on a safari adventure to the Masai Mara wildlife reserve. Acting as the northern continuation of the Serengeti National Park animal reserve in Tanzania, the Masai Mara is inhabited by a huge number of animal species indigenous to the grasslands of southwestern Kenya.
Observe giraffe, lion, gazelle, cheetah, zebra and many other exotic animals in their natural habitat on this vast African terrain. Immerse yourself in the nature and wildlife of Masai Mara in a safari expedition to one the most popular tourist attractions in Kenya.
The largest part of the reserve is the Central Plains, a vast grasslands area full of zebras, impalas, giraffes, and Thomson's gazelles as well as leopards, lions, and cheetahs. The grassy acacia woodlands of the Mara Triangle border the Mara River, both of which are rich in wildlife and beauty.
The Oloololo Escarpment forms the western boundary and the Ngama Hills lie to the east where the elusive black rhinoceros can often be spotted. A visit to the Masai Mara wildlife reserve is the nature experience of a lifetime.
