Welcome to the magical land of Maasai Mara! From the air, the Mara thickets look like spots, and that's where the name "Masai Mara Game Reserve" came from. This reserve is a haven for all the big five animals- Lions, African Elephants, Rhinos, Cape Buffalos and African Leopards, all of which were heavily poached in the past. But thanks to the Masai Mara, these majestic animals are now safe and thriving.

But there's more to Maasai Mara than the big five. Spend a day with the Maasai people and immerse yourself in their rich heritage and traditions. The memories of this special people will stay engraved in your heart forever. Don't forget to explore the park's incredible birdlife, with over 450 species of birds, including raptors.

The Masai Mara is home to a breathtaking number of animals, including umbrella-shaped trees, the winding Mara River, and the rugged Ololoolo Escarpment. And what's more thrilling than taking an exotic hot air balloon ride above the Mara River and the game-rich African savannah? You'll see the animals in their natural habitat, the sunsets will be magical, and the experience will be unforgettable.

Come to Maasai Mara and witness nature at its best, from the majestic wildlife to the vibrant culture of the Maasai people. You won't regret it!
