The Maasai Mara

KENYA

PRIVATE SAFARIS IN THE MAASAI MARA

Named in honour of the natural inhabitants of the area - the Maasai People - the Maasai Mara is an expansive wildlife conservation area in the Great Rift Valley basin of East Africa that has long been famed the world over.

Together with its southerly neighbor - the Serengeti National Park - it is a part of a far greater ecosystem known as the Mara-Serengeti ecosystem, which in total spans across some 20 000 square kilometres.

Terrain in this southern part of Kenya is mostly open and expansive, with vegetation consisting of a mix of large open short-grass plains, woodlands and riverine forests.

The area is famous for unusually high populations of wildlife, and for the annual migration, when herds of hundreds of thousands of wildebeest and zebra move through from the Serengeti into the Maasai Mara, following the seasonal rainfall and the fresh grasses they bring after having depleted the drier grasses to the South. Scenes of wildebeest jumping into crocodile-infested waters as they cross the Mara River have provided action-packed viewing to visitors for years. Together with this there are also exceptional populations of lion, leopard, and cheetahs, as well as close to 500 species of birds.

However, be cautioned: The Maasai Mara is popular and it gets crowded, especially during the migration season, which we feel detracts from the experience somewhat. For those who wish to avoid these crowds, the private concessions toward the North of this region offer far lower tourist densities as well as the opportunity to undertake day and night game drives, and by far offer the greatest higher-end experience.

For your quintessential, if not traditional, Maasai Mara tented camp experience, we like Elephant Pepper Camp, and think it captures the old of East Africa in a charming way. Whilst here, be inspired be the luxury of Mara Plains, located in a private concession to the north of the national park.
