The Masai Mara is Kenya’s most famous and popular game reserve. Masai Mara is really an extension of the Northern Serengeti eco system in Tanzania. Masai Mara is magical and you have the best opportunity to see all the big five and many other species. Masai Mara is where the great wildebeest migration (declared the ‘7th Wonder of the World’) occurs mainly in July, August, September and October of each year. We pitch tent in a campsite bordering the Masai Mara game reserve in the dispersal area
