The Maasai Mara is made of vast open rolling plains, and grasslands with seasonal river ways. The entire area of the park is situated within the enormous Great Rift Valley. The reserve is famous for its annual wildlife migration of over 1 million wildebeest and thousands of zebras crossing from the Serengeti plains in Tanzania from August through November. The reserve is home to hundreds of elephants, hippos, lions, hyenas, Cape buffalo and thousands of other ungulate species such as gazelle, topi, eland, reedbuck, zebra and giraffe. Over 500 species of birds including ostrich, larks, sunbirds, weavers as well as the lilac-breasted roller are abundant in the reserve. Your Maasai warriors will really brandish their skills in this environment and provide exhilarating morning and afternoon game drives each day.
Note: Optional Hot air ballooning is available to glide silently over the Mara with the rising sun (at additional cost).
