Where to go, what to do while in Kenya.

MAASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE​

At about 270 KM from the Capital Nairobi, the Maasai Mara remains the leading and most popular of Africa’s Greatest Wildlife Reserves. Established in 1961, The Maasai Mara together with The  Serengeti National Park in Tanzania form arguably Africa’s most diverse yet spectacular attractions and possibly the world’s top safari big game viewing eco-system.

It sits in the now Narok County and covers about 1500 sq km along the South Western end of Kenya. It has rapidly gained global recognition, owing to the bewildering and show-stopping phenomenon of the splendid wildebeest migration, now a world wonder
