Masai Mara Game Reserve
The Maasai Mara Game
reserve is arguably Kenya’s most popular game sanctuary. It is the most famous and most visited game reserve in Kenya. The film “Out of Africa” was made to a great extent in this sanctuary. There is a profusion of all types of wildlife including the big five.

The dramatic crossing of the river and the preying on the migrants by predators can be viewed from early July to August. The Game Reserve bounds with birdlife since close to about four hundred and fifty two odd species have been recorded. Hot air balloons Safaris are readily available in the park. Accommodation is plentiful in Maasai Mara and range from five star lodges to luxury tented camps. There are also Spartan tented camps and campsites within the Game reserve. Game walks and night game runs are specialties outside the Game reserves.
