Are you planning a trip to Africa? If you do, you should consider Masai Mara. It is considered as the best park in Africa. Moreover, it is one of Africa’s highest wildlife density regions for predators. So, if you want to enjoy wildlife in Africa, this place is one of the best options you have.
Masai Mara National Reserve covers an area of 583 square miles or 1510 square kilometers. Originally, it covered an area of 645 square miles or 1672 square kilometers. It was reduced in 1984, to accommodate Maasai cattle grazing.
There are many places you can visit in the reserve. You can read below some of the examples.
Mara Serena Safari Lodge
This place is considered as the ultimate safari destination. It is located at the center of ‘Mara Triangle’. It is set high on a hill filled with bush, with a view over the Mara River and savannah. If you visit this place, you will be able to see the legendary migration of the wildebeest.
Mara Intrepids Camp
Another place you can visit is the Mara Intrepids Camp. It is located near the Mara River. It can be reached with a short drive. Just like the Mara Serena Safari Lodge, you can see the wildebeest migration here in this place. The migration occurs every July and August.
Don’t worry. If you miss the migration, this place is still worth visiting. That right. There is another thing you can enjoy. For the remainder of the year, this camp provides you with some of the world’s finest game view as there are large populations of plains game, big cats, buffalos, elephants, and rhinos.
Mara Explorer Camp
Last but not least, is the Mara Explorer Camp. It is located on the Talek River, at the heart of the reserve. In this camp, you will be able to enjoy four main game viewing areas, view of hippos, watering elephant and other animals. Go to http://www.theholidaydealers.com/destinations/kenya/masai-mara.
