Kenya - The Greater Masai Mara

Home to the Masai Mara reserve and its surrounding conservatories, Kenya is a dream destination for every wildlife enthusiast out there. If you are looking for a unique safari experience, Kenya is the place to be.

The Masai Mara region is also a great place to witness the Great Migration from July to October every year. During this period, thousands of zebras and wildebeests enter Kenya from Tanzania making it an ideal location for seeing the Great Migration.

Throughout the rest of the year, Masai Mara continues to offer phenomenal resident game viewing as it serves as home to large herds of elephants, prides of lions, leopards, hyenas, and plenty of plains games. The private conservancies located around the Mara also offer other activities like night game drives and walking safaris making it a popular wildlife sighting spot throughout the year.

This itinerary combines the Masai Mara with the Mara Naboisho Conservancy, covering incredible wildlife viewing experiences across two locations with the added advantages that a conservancy-based safari experience offers.

If you enjoy getting closer to mother nature, seeing exotic wild animals in their natural habitat, and experiencing the local Maasai culture, the Greater Masai Mara is perfect for you.

As is the case with all our holiday trips, this itinerary is just a starting point, we can always curate experiences to suit your style, budget, and pace. If this itinerary doesn’t include some of the places or activities you are interested in, let us know and we will make sure to add them in for you.

Become A Force For Good On Your Vacation

Kenya - The Greater Masai Mara

We’ve curated an itinerary that not only focuses on making your vacation one of the most memorable experiences of your life but also gives you the opportunity to become a force for good by empowering local communities and nature. Your visits go beyond supporting employment for the local Masais guides.

Throughout your trip, you will be staying at selected accommodation partners that are involved in wildlife conservation and development initiatives for the local community. On the community development front, a portion of the proceeds go towards providing hospitality scholarships, staff training, supporting local children’s school fees, and other avenues that help the locals in different ways.

On the wildlife conservation aspect, whether it’s Big Cat Conservation, Rhino conservation, or elephant conservation, rest assured that your money will go towards protecting these wild animals from snares and educating the local community on managing conflicts with wildlife. Certain areas in the Mara also deploy guards accompanied by K9 patrolling units which have been successful in bringing down threats to wildlife.

On top of that, all the properties that you will be staying run mostly on green energy with around 90% of the power coming from renewable resources, and safari properties have eliminated single use plastics totally.

These efforts help the locals understand how tourism and their local wildlife can impact their lives positively which gives them a reason to protect the animals and environment so you can get the best safari experience the Mara has to offer.
