Whether you’ve seen the countless wildlife documentaries, or whether Africa has always a destination on your bucket list, East Africa, especially Kenya is famous for its vast savannas and teeming wildlife. The Masai Mara, arguably Kenya’s most famous wildlife destination, was established as a sanctuary in 1961. Herds of herbivores, including Wildebeest, Thomson’s Gazelles, Impalas, and more, migrate into and occupy the Reserve, from July to October. These herbivores are resident in the Masai Mara, but are seen in large numbers during the migration season. All members of the Big Five are also found here. The Big Five refers to the five main attractions of African wildlife: Lion, Leopard, the Rhinoceros (Black and White), African Elephant, and Buffalo. The park is also home to other iconic African animals, such as Hippopotamus, Cheetahs, Masai Giraffe, and Nile Crocodiles.
Birdwatchers will have a great time here as well. More than 470 species of birds have been spotted in the Mara, including Marabou Stork, Secretarybird, Common Ostrich, Long-crested Eagle, and many more.
