There aren’t many people who haven’t heard of the Maasai Mara known across the globe for its Great Migration that brings over 1.5 million animals into the reserve from July to November each year. Tucked within the Great Rift Valley, this big-shot reserve has the most concentrated wildlife on the reserve’s western escarpment – so concentrated in fact, that you’re almost guaranteed to sight the Big Five. Bordering the Serengeti in Tanzania, the Maasai Mara is also home to bat-eared fox, hyena, cheetah and an abundance of antelope while hippo and crocodile patrol the riverbeds. Even though this fantastic reserve is great for safaris all year round, the best time to visit is during the migration to spot fascinating wildebeest river crossings or in December and January for calving season. Guests can look forward to day and night game drives, hot air balloon safaris, bush dinners, a visit to a traditional Maasai cultural village and so much more. Tempted?
