Masai Mara National Reserve

Kenya is the home of the original safari holiday, and the Masai Mara is the country’s best known reserve. A land of vast savannahs, the Masai Mara offers a true big game experience and a wide selection of luxury safari camps either in the national park or its neighbouring conservancies.

Game viewing is fantastic throughout the year, with a highlight being the months of September and October. This is when the thousands-strong wildebeest herds of the great migration pass through the park – with predators hot on their hooves.
