Dream of Africa and chances are you dream of Maasai Mara. It is the home to Africa’s Big Five species, as well as an abundance of other wildlife, including wildebeest, cheetah, hyena, giraffe and many more. It borders the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. Often described as nature’s greatest spectacles, the great migration is one of Africa’s dramatic stories.

This occurs every year between July and October where more than 1.5 million wildebeests, zebras, gazelles and elands move mysteriously from the Serengeti in Tanzania to Maasai Mara in Kenya in search of grass and water. This movement offers nature lovers the opportunity to view as predators such as the Lion, Hyenas, Crocodiles and Cheetahs prey on the wildebeests. This mass movement is one of the Seven Wonders of the World.

The Mara can be accessed through Sekenani, Ololomutiek, Talek and Musiara Gates. By road from Nairobi it’s about five hours and by air one can take a scheduled flight from Wilson airport and Jomo Kenyatta international airport in Nairobi which is about 45 minutes to either Keekorok, Olkiombo or Musiara airstrips.
