Maasai Mara Game Reserve
Masai Mara is an open grassland and riveline forest with whistling thorn trees situated in southwest Kenya in the Rift valley covering an area of 1,510sq km (580 sq miles) and rises to an altitude 1,500-2,500 meters above sea level. With its huge concentration of game including abundant number of lions, all members of the big five and the famous wildebeest migration, Masai Mara which is found 270 km away from Nairobi is easily one of Kenya’s best and Africa’s finest and most popular tourist destination.
Masai Mara was voted as eighth wonder of the world due to the famous wildebeest migration which is an annual phenomenon characterized by a continuous movement of over 1.5 million wildebeests and thousands of zebras, gazelles and elands from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania in search of pasture. Hundreds of hooves pounding the open plain grassland in search of pasture in predator filled thickets accompanied by an orchestra of grunts create a spectacle to behold, with Spectacular scenes of thousands of animals mating while on the move, with many cows becoming pregnant during the migration while others are giving birth , to calves that have to learn to stand and walk immediately keeping up with the rest of the herd gives our Makilands Tour and Safari visitors a spectacular and a memorable lifetime experience making MasaiMara a preferred and a major tourist destination. With more than 450 bird species reported including over 57 birds of prey Masaimara is a bird watchers paradise. These birds include red winged schalow's turaco, Ross turaco, orange buff pel's fishing owl, white-tipped crest, wary guinea fowl, the Jackson's bustard, black-bellied hartlaubs bustard as well as the Secretary birds and the ostrich.
Optional Cultural visits to the masai villages are equally thrilling and exciting to make your safari complete as you interact with these friendly and social people famous for their custom and dress and their willingness to conserve the environment as they co-exist peacefully with the wild life through group ranches.
