The Masai Mara National Reserve is one of the top safari destinations not only in Kenya but also in Africa. Its vast endless plains provide a safe haven for large herds of animals like elephants, buffalo, zebra, giraffe, hyena, not forgetting Mara’s famous big cats: lion, leopard, and cheetah. Between the months of July to October every year, the Mara is a hotspot for the millions upon millions of wildebeest that follow the rains on their most epic journey which is dangerous and very long.
Excellent game viewing in the Masai Mara all year round is attributed to its diverse landscapes, temperate climate, and variety in the population of resident game. Its bight blossoming savannahs are home to safari legends and top safari bucket listers like lion, leopard, elephant, and buffalo not leaving behind species like zebra, giraffe, hyena, eland, and gazelle. Rhino sightings can not be promised as they are occasional, not to say that they cannot be spotted if you're in luck you may get a spotting of one or two of these large animals.
