Wildlife Safari in Masai Mara National Reserve

Wildlife Safari in Masai Mara National Reserve

Established in 1961, Masai Mara National Reserve beautiful reserve is home to numerous species of mammals, including a large free-roaming elephant population, Big Cats, otters, the spotted hyena, elephants, zebras, hippos, and more than 200 cheetahs. Bird-watching is a popular activity with frequent sightings of species such as Kori bustard, Rufous-bellied heron, Secretary bird, Sooty chat, Usambiro barbet, peregrine falcon, grey kestrel, along with many interesting varieties of butterflies.

The wildebeest migration, between the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania and the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya, is one of the world's greatest spectacular events.

Masai Mara Animals: Check what Animals to Spot on Safari

There aren’t many black rhinos left in the world (they are endangered) but Masai Mara National Reserve has worked hard to repopulate them and keep them safe from poachers. Some people buy the horns for Chinese medicine, and poaching is a major issue. We got very close to the rhinos here and it was nothing but magical. 

The best ways to enjoy the park's splendid animal scenery are to take a 4x4 jeep or guided jungle walk, the latter allowing visitors a chance to come face to face with elephant herds and observe other wildlife from the jeep's open top.
