The Maasai Mara is the very epitome of Kenya. Just the name conjures images of scarlet-robed Maasai warriors, boundless savannahs dotted with saucer-topped acacia trees and waterholes fringed with Africa’s most iconic beasts. It’s here that every summer, tourists gather to watch the most incredible wildlife show on earth: The Great Migration. Following the scent of lush grasslands, over two million wildebeest, antelope and zebra flood, lemming-like, from the sun-scorched plains of the Serengeti into the Maasai Mara. Kicking up clouds of dust, they flow over the mountains in a tsunami of hooves, big cat predators in hot pursuit and crocodiles lurking in the river crossings ahead.
Even without the migration, the Maasai Mara is home to one of the highest concentrations of wildlife in the world. As you bump over the plains in a 4×4, binoculars in hand, you’ll spot herds of elephants and impala navigating the grasslands as hyenas squabble over abandoned carcases and warthogs snuffle in the dirt. While giraffes snag leaves from trees decorated with colourful birds, the Maasai’s lion prides – made famous by the BBC’s Big Cat Diaries – stalk through the grasslands. As the sun sinks below the horizon, retreat to a luxury tented camp where you’ll fall asleep to animal calls and wake in time for sunrise game drives and bush breakfasts.
