Maasai Mara

The Maasai Mara: a vast, untamed wilderness teeming with iconic wildlife and embodying the captivating essence of Africa’s natural beauty.

Kenya’s Wild and
Wonderous Land

The Mara, as it is known, covers an area of some 1,500 square kilometres in the southwest of Kenya and together with the Serengeti in neighbouring Tanzania forms one of the most critically important ecosystems in Africa.  From July to October each year the Maasai Mara hosts the great migration which sees millions of wildebeest move into the area from the Serengeti in search of fresh grazing, crossing the Mara River on their journey. This is a natural spectacle like no other and has to be seen to be believed. The influx of the wildebeest is accompanied by huge numbers of zebra and signals one of the biggest wildlife shows on the planet as Africa’s predators take advantage of the sheer volume of prey species. 

Spotted land where
wildlife roams free

The Maasai Mara, originating from the Maasai tribe and ‘Mara’ meaning ‘spotted,’ unveils a captivating tapestry of wildlife and picturesque landscapes. This renowned wildlife sanctuary in East Africa is a premier destination for Kenya Safaris, boasting an incredible diversity of animals such as lions, cheetahs, elephants, rhinos, buffaloes, wildebeests, giraffes, zebras, and more. These creatures roam freely across the expansive Kenyan wilderness, painting a vivid picture of nature’s untouched beauty. Besides the major mammal species, the Mara is also home to more than 450 species of birds and is breathtakingly beautiful, with its vast open spaces and gently rolling hills providing unique panoramas.


The Maasai Mara has a collection of incredible lodges, camps, and exclusive use stays that offer the perfect base from which to explore that area.
