Masai Mara National Reserve
We spend the following two days on game drives through the Masai Mara National Reserve – famous as one of East Africa’s top National Reserves and home to a broad selection of wildlife species. It is perhaps most well-known for hosting the magnificent Annual Migration, consisting of massive herds of over one million, including wildebeest, zebra, and Thomson’s gazelle that all cross over from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. The Masai Mara is most visited between the months of July and October, when these impressive herds feast on the luscious, fresh grazing available in the reserve. Africa’s predators are usually close behind these herbivores and are frequently seen at a kill during this time of year. We game drive some more through a portion of the park searching for the Big 5, as well as the many other species of wildlife that make this reserve their home. Following our days of game spotting we have the opportunity to pay a visit to one of the close by Masai Manyattas – family compounds where the Masai carry out their traditional lives. During the nights, we gather around an crackling campfires and marvel at the magnificent sunsets provided to us each day by the glorious skies of Africa.
