Maasai Mara & Lake Nakuru Camping
Why go on a Masai Mara Safari? Simply stated, it is the best destination in Kenya for viewing wildlife – and lots of it! The Masai Mara is home to a great wildlife spectacle. Sometime between August and November over 2 million wildebeest migrate from the Serengeti in search of water and grazing.
For many people, timing their Masai Mara Safari to coincide with the migration seems vital – but with a very abundant and healthy resident population of animals, a holiday to the Masai Mara is great at any time of the year.
The word Mara means “spotted”. One thought is that this relates to the landscape, which is patched with groves of acacia and thorn bushes, but it is more likely that it was named for the speckled inundation of wildebeest and million other herbivores during the migration. With its rolling grasslands and wide-open savannah, the Masai Mara is the kind of African landscape that you see in the movies!
Predators also prevail in the Mara and include large pride of lions, a fair number of cheetahs and leopards, spotted hyenas and silver- or black-backed jackals.
