Masai Mara Tours, Adventure Packages and Budget Safaris

Established in 1961, the Masai Mara is situated in an enormous game park in Narok County, Kenya, and is joined to the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. The reserve was named in honour of the Masai tribe, who were the original occupants of the region. Translated from the Masai word ‘Maa’ meaning ‘spotted’, the Masai Mara was also named due to how the area looks from a distance, with circles of trees, thickets, savannahs and cloud shadows that seem to dot the park.

Masai Mara Tours, Adventure Packages and Budget Safaris

When you head off on one of our Masai Mara Tours you will discover why it is one of the greatest and most popular wildlife parks in all of Africa. Famous the world over for its incredible abundance of the big cats: lion, leopard and cheetah, as well as its annual migration during which masses of zebra, Thomson’s gazelle and 1.5 million wildebeest make their way to and from the Serengeti while crossing through the crocodile infested Masai Mara river. The Masai Mara people have a fascinating culture and an extremely distinctive style of dress.

The Masai Mara Ecosystem supports one of the largest lion populations in the world and covers an amazing 1,510 square kilometres, reaching up to 2,170 metres above sea level. The reserve is home to more than 95 mammal species and approximately 570 documented bird species. Discarded arrowheads and pottery of the Neolithic man, who lived over 2,000 years ago, have been discovered in the Masai Mara National Reserve. The Masai have inhabited the region since the 17th century and, together with the magnificent wildlife of the park, remain the true landlords of the area.

The various landscapes of the reserve include sandy soil and small shrubbery in the east, the Siria Escarpment that forms a remarkable plateau which acts as border in the west, dense grass and woodlands around the Mara River, and vast savannahs with dispersed thickets that cover the biggest portion of the park. The topography here is extremely diverse, giving visitors a romantic view of beautiful Africa. The Masai Mara River is home to an abundance of hippo and crocodile, and the birdlife around the park is simply spectacular with eagles, ostriches, storks, vultures and over 50 different birds of prey. Other animals to be seen in the reserve include hyena, giraffe, impala, topi, baboons, warthogs, buffalo and elephants. In 2005, a visionary conservationist named Jake Grieves-Cook approached the Masai people, who technically owned the land, and offered to rent out portions of it for them. In exchange, the Masai vacated the land and stopped their cattle from grazing on it. The lands swiftly transformed back into lush grassland, allowing the wildlife to prosper.

The Masai Mara are now paid rent, and numerous families are benefiting from employment at some of the eco-friendly camps that have been erected in the area. The number of tourists and safari vehicles in the reserve are firmly limited, resulting in magnificent safari experiences. Other than game drives through the park, feel free to participate in walking tours of the area with a knowledgeable Masai guide. You could also participate in a cultural tour of a traditional Masai village, during which you will be treated to an educational experience of the Masai lifestyles. You could also game view in luxury from the aerial viewpoint of a hot air balloon at dawn, giving you an awe-inspiring view of magical Africa.
