The home of the new Seventh Wonder of the World, the Great Migration, the astounding Masai Mara National Reserve undoubtedly deserves to the number one unmissable sight in Kenya! The reserve has rightfully earned its place as the most visited destination in the country – the Mara remains the embodiment of what the Kenyan safari experience is all about! This diverse habitat stretches across an incredible 1,510 sq. km of southwestern Kenya. It’s the ideal spot to discover prides of lions lying under the trees, roaming herds of elephants and even spot one or two black rhinos and buffaloes – this is the unique variety and insight that make Kenyan safaris a truly unforgettable journey into the natural world.
The reserve is home to all the Big Five and numerous other species of wildlife including hundreds of bird varieties. Of course, the star attraction of the Mara is the Great Migration; watch on as millions of wildebeests make their way from the Serengeti in Tanzania, across the Mara River to the Kenyan side. The size of the migration – and the scale of this dramatic landscape – can be difficult to appreciate, so why not take a hot air balloon ride and enjoy a stunning new perspective on this incredible event? You’ll never forget it!
