Masai Mara National Reserve
Diamond in Kenya’s crown of National Parks, the Masai Mara is arguably Kenya’s most spectacular option to visit, with dramatic scenes of over a million wildebeest crossing the Mara River each year during the migration season. Even outside of this event, wildlife in the Mara is abundant year round, with over 450 species of birds, the 'Big Five' all residents in the park and one of the highest lion densities in the world. Here, aside of enjoying the quintessential safari experience, you can wake up early for the sunrise, watch colourful hot air balloons glide across the landscape, and learn about the rich cultural heritage of the Masai people, who still walk the plains grazing their cattle right in the path of predators.
