Masai Mara safari

Kenya’s showpiece experience

Kenya’s showpiece experience, a Masai Mara safari can be considered a stand-alone destination. Itineraries begin in Nairobi where you’ll fly in. You may need to spend a night in the capital; there is good accommodation set in the quiet suburbs. Most of our tours then fly from Nairobi to a private airstrip in the Masai Mara, maximising your safari experience. It’s also simple to add a beach holiday onto your Masai Mara safari: Kenya’s glittering Indian Ocean coast sits a short flight away from the Mara plains.

But the Masai Mara’s close proximity to Kenya’s other top safari destinations such as Amboseli and the Mount Kenya region means rewarding combination safaris. And with Tanzania’s fabled Serengeti lying across the Masai Mara’s southern border, a Masai Mara and Serengeti safari guarantees you the wildebeest migration as well as superb game viewing. Add on the Ngorongoro Crater and you have the very best of East Africa in a single itinerary.

Top Experiences

Mara provides year-round game viewing

1. Watch the Migration

It’s Nature’s greatest show: a million animals on the move. The croc-filled river crossings provide the greatest drama but you’ll need to book well ahead for the best places – ask us how.

2. Enjoy a View for Two

Many Masai Mara lodges specialise in discreet romance. Couples on honeymoon or celebrating a special occasion can look forward to sumptuous lodgings, private pools & table-for-two dining.

3. Walk with Maasai

Maasai herders share the savannah with big game: you’ll have opportunities to visit local communities & learn about village life. The traditional ‘jumping dance’ is a highlight on these sensitively-conducted tours.

4. Track the Cats

With this much wildlife on the hoof, the Masai Mara is a Year-round paradise for lions, leopards & cheetahs but your chances of seeing them in action are greater when the migrating wildebeest arrive.

5. Go Private

Avoid peak-season crowds by staying a private reserve adjoining the Masai Mara. You’ll enjoy exclusive sightings, night drives & plenty of privacy – perfect for discerning travellers & honeymooners.

6. Fly High

Start the day the Mara way: watching dawn break over the savannah – from 1 000 feet up. A hot-air balloon flight delivers the best view imaginable & there’s champagne waiting for you on touchdown.

7. Bring the Family

Several Masai Mara lodges offer child-based safari activities, childminders & private vehicles for family drives. Accommodation ranges from 4-sleeper tented suites to private family villas

8. Walk the Wild

Setting out on a walking safari in the Masai Mara ecosystem not only offers you the chance to stretch your legs, but also the opportunity to focus on some of the smaller ecosystems that are often overlooked
