Maasai Mara National Reserve Holiday Ideas For You

A trip to Kenya feels complete only if you visit Maasai Mara National Reserve. This is not because Masai Mara is the only park Kenya has. There many other wildlife shelters in the country. Maasai Mara is a little more famous than other parks because of the Great Wildebeest Migration, a phenomenon that recurs every year. This natural event can only be observed from summer, mainly from July to October. Nairobi Maasai Mara safari are very common in these months and failure to plan your Kenyan holiday beforehand could mean that you would miss the top Kenyan tour operator to serve you.

There are extremely many tour operators in Kenya but some of them do not have their own vehicles and other necessary gear. We recommend using a company like Dream Kenya Safaris that has a fleet of big, 4-wheel drive autos. By so doing you will feel safe and comfortable. Masai Mara is in a remote area near the southwestern border of Kenya and Tanzania. You therefore want to come prepared to spend a few days in the bush. Your close allies in Mara will be fellow visitors, the Maasai people and animals. The reserve is sort of smaller than some other Kenyan parks yet it tends to have the biggest animal population.

It is possible to view almost every creature found in Kenya inside Maasai Mara National Reserve without prolonging your stay. There are just so many animals in the vast plains of Mara. Wildebeests and zebras arrive to Kenya in massive groups from Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. Both of these animal species are so fond of each other that they always move together. They even get hunted together in the Mara River by the giant Nile Crocodiles during the Great Wildebeest Migration. Zebras and Wildebeests are surely inseparable friends. Prides of lions walk majestically all over and you will be able to see plenty of them during your Kenyan safari to Maasai Mara.
