Maasai Mara National Reserve is an area of preserved savannah wilderness in southwestern Kenya, along the Tanzanian border. The landscape has grassy plains and rolling hills, and is crossed by the Mara and Talek rivers. The area nearby is dotted with villages (enkangs) of Maasai people. The Masai Mara National Reserve is 1510 sq km of open rolling grasslands that extend northward from Tanzania’s Serengeti. It reaches its pinnacle every July and August when over a million wildebeest and herd animals migrate here in search of lush grass, only
to turn south for greener pastures in October and November The Mara is known as one of the finest wildlife destinations in the World. There is an excellent chance of seeing the
Big 5, cheetah, serval, hyena, bat-eared foxes, black-backed and side-striped jackals, hippo,
crocodile, baboons, warthog, topi, eland, Thompson’s gazelle, Grant’s gazelle, impala, waterbuck, oribi, reed-buck, zebra. Activities includes Game viewing, camping,
night game drives, visits to Masai cultural villages, ballooning, bush dinner, lunch and breakfast. As wedding destination in the country, it
makes for a spot for a destination wedding photographer to engage different scenes with clients. Peak season is between July and October, during the migration. Early November and February can also offer
excellent game viewing. You should spend a minimum of 4 days and 3
nights at the Masai Mara for you to enjoy the full scope of wildlife in the park. Four days and Three nights will allow you
to have 4 game drives for the length of your stay and allow you enough time to rest when
you arrive at the park. Mara Serena with 150 beds that have luxury
bedding and Little Governors’ Camp with 36 beds luxury bedding are the only two lodges
situated in the Triangle. Kichwa Tembo, Mpata Club, Olonana, Mara Siria
and Kilima Camp are situated on the periphery but use the Triangle. There are two options to reach the Masai Mara
and Kilima Camp when you come from Nairobi. You can choose to come by road or to fly to the Mara. Driving to the Masai Mara will take you about
6 hours whereas if you fly to the Masai Mara, it will takes about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
