ACTIVITIES IN MASAI MARA

Each safari lodge or tented camp in the Masai Mara offers its own program of safari activities. In addition to game drives you may have an opportunity to go on a guided nature walk, to take to the clear blue skies for a hot air balloon safari, to go for a bush picnic, to visit a local Masai manyatta (village) or to take part in other optional activities. Keep in mind that some of these activities may not be included in the price of your safari and may require an additional fee (such as hot air balloon safaris). In any case, there’s plenty to keep you entertained during a safari in the Masai Mara. No need to worry about being bored during your trip.

Great Migration in Masai Mara

Know the saying ‘the grass is always greener on the other side’? Well, during the great migration, the grass is indeed greener on the other side. Each year, over two million wildebeest, zebra and other herbivores trek from the southern Serengeti to the lush green grasses of the Masai Mara. Known as one of the seven wonders of the world, the great migration is an iconic safari must-see.

Hot-air balloon safari

Flying high up in the skies above the Masai Mara is the ultimate safari experience. The landscape below is a never-ending exciting mixture of riverine forests, sprawling savannahs, towering escarpments and rugged rivers. Against a backdrop of stunning sunrises, hot-air balloon flights in the Masai Mara give you a unique vantage point of the abundant wildlife living below. There’s really nothing quite like it, the view is unparalleled and the experience is unforgettable.

Game drives in Masai Mara

Once you reach the Masai Mara, a cornucopia of wildlife awaits. If you decide to stay at a lodge in one of the conservancies, your lodge will offer a variety of safari options. One of those could be day safari into the Masai Mara National Reserve proper. Please keep in mind that if you plan on staying at a lodge within the actual National Reserve, it will not be possible to do a day trip into a neighboring conservancy. Safaris within the conservancies are only possible for those staying at lodges within their boundaries.

Maasai people – meet your hosts

Dressed in bright red robes, spear in hand, Masai warriors are an impressive sight to behold. Calm and courageous in dangerous situations, this tribe is renowned for its remarkable trackers with generations of knowledge of their lands and its wildlife. As semi-nomadic pastoralists, they still live by herding cattle and goats. Where other Kenyan tribes have adjusted to modern-day living and sacrificed their lands and their livelihood, the Masai still stay true to their traditions.
