Tailor Made Holidays to Maasai Mara

Think of the ultimate African wildlife experience and Maasai Mara will spring to mind. This vast game reserve - located in the Great Rift Valley - is named after the ancient Maasai tribe and the word ‘mara’ translates to ‘spotted’, which aptly describes the acacia trees and herds of wildebeest and zebras dotting the glasslands. These vast plains are home to a rich variety of flora and fauna, and there’s no better (or more exhilarating) way to explore them than with a guided safari. Spot all members of the Big Five and many more wonderful creatures while deepening your understanding of these epic ecosystems and the conservation challenges they face.

Together with the neighbouring Serengeti National Park, Maasai Mara is famous for hosting one of the most breathtaking wildlife events on Earth. Every year from July to September, millions of wildebeests and zebras migrate in their millions across the vast plains and rivers in search for food and water. One of the largest mammal migrations in the world, this unforgettable spectacle has long captured the attention of naturalists, photographers and filmmakers - and now it’s your turn to get in on the action. 

Though animals reign supreme, the outskirts of Maasai Mara are dotted with traditional villages, community conservancies and private lodges, offering a fascinating insight into how tourism, indigenous tribes and the wildlife exist in harmony.

Awe-inspiring vistas, endless animal encounters and traditional Kenyan culture make Maasai Mara a highlight on many people’s East African itineraries. So what are you waiting for? It’s time to pack those not-so-flattering khaki clothes and prepare to plunge into the wilderness.

Maasai Mara is automatically included as part of the Kenya base itineraries. You can then add a variety of other destinations to create a tailor-made itinerary. Head over to our itinerary builder now to start creating an unforgettable holiday.
