Kenya’s Masai Mara, bordering the Serengeti in Tanzania and lying adjacent to the Great Rift Valley, is one of the very few areas left in Africa where wildlife can be seen in the large numbers that existed a hundred years ago with some of the best game viewing in Africa.
There is a mass of resident game but a particular highlight is the Great Migration, ‘the greatest wildlife show on earth’, which takes place between July and October. During these months, the plains darken with wildebeest and zebra, millions of them passing through on their hazardous annual journey in search of fresh pastures.
There is particularly good predator activity at this time, as lions, leopards, cheetahs and crocodiles earn their prey. As well as the prolific wildlife, the dramatic landscapes provide photo opportunities at every turn, from soaring escarpments to acacia-dotted grasslands, and blazing sunsets to towering rain clouds. Despite its popularity, there are plenty of small camps and lodges hidden in concession areas adjacent to the reserve and away from the madding crowds.
