Location of Masai Mara

On the list, Masai Mara National Reserve is the furthest park we have considered; it’s 270km from Nairobi’s capital.

What to see at Masai Mara

The wide, picturesque expanse of gradually sloping African savannah grasslands, stretching 1510 km2 in southwestern Kenya, joins Tanzania’s Serengeti Plains southward. The fame of this amazing Savannah plain dwells in the Great Migration and the luxurious tented camps in the parks.

The exceptional biodiversity of open grasslands offers one of the greatest wildlife safari experiences. Nowhere else in Africa is there a greater diversity of species than the Mara, which draws tourists for the yearly wildebeest migration.

This adventure makes Kenya one of the most attractive safari destinations in East Africa and Africa at large.

The park has been featured in a number of World Travel Awards and scooped several scoops several times. Masai Mara National Reserve and its counterpart Serengeti National Park in the northern Tanzania are the major safari destinations on the African continent.
