The Masai Mara is the most famous nature reserve in Africa.
It is located in Kenya in an altitude from 1500 to 1650 meters above sea level. With an area of 1,510 square kilometers, the nature reserve is located on the Serengeti National Park.
It is one of the richest wildlife reserves around the world.
There are year-round good opportunities to see the Big Five, elephant, lion, buffalo, rhino and leopard in their natural habitat.
In no other national reserve in the world, the predator density is as high as in the Maasai Mara especially on big cats
There are a lot of lion prides. With a little luck, you can watch a hunt for prey.
The beautiful leopards and very fast cheetahs meet in the Maasai Mara most often. But there are still many other wonderful animals you can admire all year in incredible numbers.
But there are also many other wonderful animals we’ll see: Gnus, antelopes, gazelles, zebras, giraffes, hippos, hyenas, crocodiles, monkeys and many of the more than 400 species of birds! There are over 80 species of mammals.
And each year during the months of June to October, there will also be here one of the greatest natural spectacles throughout the animal world:
The Big Migration
Approximately 1.3 million gnus, over 200.000 zebra and 350,000 gazelles and antelopes migrate from the Serengeti in Tanzania to Maasai Mara.
On their way they cross the Mara River. Exact that great river, at whose banks our camp is located.
The Maasai Mara is characterized by a great variety of natural habitats. You move through endless wide, open plains, rolling hills covered with large areas of grass and acacia trees. Then there are smaller areas of forest, extensive marshes, swamps and dense riverine forests. The diversity of landscapes is the basis for an incredible abundance of animals
